"Chuck Norris?" I asked. "What do you know about Chuck Norris?"
"Oh" Wren said. "Frost always says that. When my guy can dive to the ground and not die Frost says - GO ON, CHUCK NORRIS IT!"
I am seriously old.
As we were driving home from school today, Wren said "I have three modes. These are my modes:
1) Normal mode
2) Staring blurry eyed into space THINKING mode.
3) Math mode: when I think a lot about math.
Another time he told me one of his modes was 4) Game mode.

This about sums Wren up. He is loving math - often starts calculating how many minutes in an hour or seconds in a minute. He loves multiplying. Today, while shopping, he read the prices of the three types of popsicle I bought:
$4.99 - I told him to make it $5.
and totalled them $13.19c ! I was a bit startled. Personally, I think he combined mode 2 and 3 for that sum.
He is still not reading sentences with any fluency although he is much better at the Set 1 Bob Books. I think we need to practice. He continues to draw and write lots of things. Here are some recent examples:
|Magical Creatures. Their abilities. I can read Wren and it says things like |
diamond and golden and gold.
|Various weapons and charms.|
He is also quite excited about making books and charts. At school, the kids have been making books and I helped him make a chart of the number of dogs we see each day on our ride around Greenlake. He is very interested in his chart and keeps talking about it.
|The Dog Chart. As you can see, dog density increased through the week.|
