Robin took the CAT test this week, as required by law. Because he is not a confident reader yet, we asked his proctor to read the test to him, but he did the work of selecting the answers. In most areas he did very, very well. However, he doesn't have a good grasp of spelling or other language mechanics yet, which was reflected in his scores. I read to him: Grandma Elephant's in ChargeGrandma Elephant's in Charge by Martin Jenkins


You Can Count on Monsters You Can Count on Monsters by Richard Evan Schwartz

We listened to the music described in the last book. He went swimming and exercised.
