Basketball

 

I went to the Sixers game against Miami Heat.

Both teams practicing before the game.
 

Lebron makes Special dunk shots during practice. WoW!!

 

I was sooo sleepy after the game, Miami won.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

My basketball game was the next morning. I made one shot, I am getting much, much better, I played very defensively. I am having a lot of fun and we are really becoming a team.
We are now 4 and 1…

Dyslexic Winterfest

 

I sometimes chew on cups, it helps me pay attention,when my mom is reading me something. My Mom taped this picture on my alarm clock. I didn’t know what AM & PM was.

I though AM stood for “At Morning”. My Mom said I was right.

I think differently than some people, I figured if I know what AM stands for, I don’t need to know what PM stands for, because it must mean afternoon.

I like the picture she made for me.

 

Going to our First Dyslexia Even! I am excited, I am going to make sure I meet Ben Foss!

This is the Book Ben wrote.

He is Dyslexic like me. I think everybody should read or listen to this book.

This will teach people about dyslexic people.

 

Guess What?

I met Ben Foss!! He is such a nice man.

I talked to him alot and gave him my business cards

and told him I would like to be a Speaker about Dyslexia

to share my stories with other little kids and parents and teachers. I want to help make other kids life easier. I know how hard it is when your teacher dosn’t understand you. School can be a scary place for dyslexic kids.

I am scared to go to school tomorrow, because I don’t want to be tested. I am scared because I don’t know what to expect in my class everyday. Last week was a spelling bee, now I don’t know what could be next.

Dyslexic kids need to feel safe, really all kids need to feel safe.

I told Ben about my fears and showed him all my bad school work that is all marked up. He flet bad for me.

He told me to self advocate which means speak up for myself. I told him that I did, but it didn’t work with my teacher. So he told me to show her what ever it is that is not something for me and say, ” This does NOT work for ME!”

He told me to keep saying it to all my teachers and never give up. He knows how I feel.

Most peope don’t know anything about dyslexia.

It is hard for people to understand. We don’t look like we have something. We just need people to listen to us and understand.

There are things tha even My mom is still learning everyday.

Like why I ask so many questions. It because that is the best way I learn.

My Mom also never knew that I didnt know what AM & PM was. When she found out she drew me a picture & taped it to my alarm clock.. 

 

 

 These are My three Strength Bands!

Ben Foss gets kids with dyslexia!

He made us focus on our strengths!

I have the same strengths as Ben did.

We have the same colored bracelets.

My TOP strengths are: Narrative – because I like to tell stories.

Verbal – because I like to talk to people.

Social – because I make friends easily and I am friendly.

I have many other strengths like Athletic, Visual and others.

Ben says to focus on Your strengths always.

He really liked me, I could tell.

I am so glad we went. 

We met other nice people there like Matt and I forget the other guys name from Eye to Eye. They help little kids understand their dyslexia because they all have it.

Everyone was soo nice to us. It is nice to be around people who are like you.

Delxia

Sometimes havng Delxia is hard becaus it causes alot of trouble for me.My Mom is writing this for me until I learn How to train My Dragon, Im going to get Dragon software so I can speak and it turns to words for me.

I had a bad week at school.

I found out on Monday that we were having a Spelling Bee in our classroom. I asked my teacher if everybody had to participate in the Spelling Bee, and she said everybody is going to try.

Now I’m getting nervous because I didn’t want to get in front of my class and spell all the words wrong. My Mom told me I wouldn’t have to do things like this.

I like to do stuff that I am good at like Oral Reports but we do not get a lot of them.  I am Not really good at school work, but I am Very smart.

About the Spelling Bee I was really worried about it. I didn’t want my friends to laugh at me if I spelled the words wrong. I have Dyslexia and I am proud of it.

No teacher should make a Dyslexic child Spell in front of everybody, It can lower their self esteem and make them feel bad about their self like they don’t feel smart.

If you look at just some of my school work on this post you can see that I usually don’t do good on my work and tests.

I wish my teacher didn’t be so hard on me. 

 

When I look at this paper it says Failure to me. Look, I got everyone wrong. I think my teacher should not have showed me this paper and said can we go over it again. It makes you feel bad to get your school work wrong all the time.
 We evern had to take a test before a school trip.I can’t catch a break.

I found the night before the trip. Mommy and I studied so hard for this test all night long. Mommy said don’t worry about the spelling, just as long as you know what it means. I did know all the answers, I got them mostly all right I just didn’t spell them correctly.

This makes me feel bad.

This was the back of one of My test. My teacher sent me a surprise. Oh Look, “I’m the Dumbest One in My Class”.

Who writes this on the back of a kids test? I felt Horrible after I saw that.

 

 

This was just a pop quiz. I had no idea we were going to have it.Now I know what a pop quiz is. I spelled these words all right but its Not good enough for my teacher because all the ‘u’s” are wrong.I feel like nothing is good to her.When I look at this paper, I see nothing done right. Like I can never win.
These are my 5 Science Tests. Finally she didn’t mark anything for spelling. I did really good on all of them.I studied with My Mom alot out loud but the teacher doesn’t let me do the test orally. My Mom says thats ok if I can’t spell the words as long as I know what it is and what it means my mom says I’m fine. 

You see, I am really smart.

 

If someone gave me a chance to show them how smart I am, I would.

Dyslexic kids just need a chance to have a person that understands them.

I wish I had that kind of a teacher.

 

I am so Proud of these Tests.I am going to write and record lots of books about how to treat Dyslexic little children.I am going to a Dyslexic festival tomorrow. I hope I meet the author Ben Foss, He wrote The Dyslexic Empowerment Plan, My mom read me lots of it.Bens Mom used to read him all his work also, just like my Mom does for me. I am excited to meet him and other dyslexic people. Maybe they can help me with my Dyslexia in my school Can you believe its 2014 and the teachers don’t care about how a Dyslexic child is. I don’t like getting papers that are always all marked up.I wish she could just help me with the lessons instead.
