Amy: reading and arithmetic

Amy still shows little interest in reading or writing, though she’s getting better at “What letter does ____ start with?”: fricatives such as /s/ or /f/ were easy, but she’s starting to recognise plosives such as /t/ or /p/, too. (She still gets unsure with B vs P, though.)

She’s getting better at arithmetic (especially addition), though, even though this isn’t something we practice. But she comes up with things such as, “If there are four children and we join them, then there will be seven in all” or the like.

She’s also getting a lot better at drawing.
