OK, so I was teaching Will about adding -ed to words. I had never really stopped to think that -ed makes three different sounds: -ed (painted), -t (worked) and -d (rained). Will wasn't feeling 100% healthy, and I was trying to help him along as much as possible by covering the -ed with my finger so he would first see the root word and then showing him the -ed. I was also saying, "Today I smile; yesterday I..." and he would supply "smiled."
"Today I help; yesterday I... "
"Today I jump; yesterday I..."
"Today I rock; yesterday I..."
What am I going to do with this child??
