I wanted to talk about A Formidable List (for children of 6). I know my DS1 is not likly to make it by 6 even without his SN I think it is a bit much for a ACTIVE 6 yo boy .. but i am jsut wondering, did thoese of you who worked on it ... work on it intentionally, or just let things go and then check in every so often and say "oh yep he/ she can do THAT". did you set out with it as a goal, as something you worked towards?

So I would suggest printing those for math and language arts. That's what I...
