#NowICan – Amelia’s progress

August 15, 2016


Amelia’s #NowICan summer goal was to learn to read and spell long words – you hear more in our video. We caught up with Amelia to hear how she’s been getting on!

Week 1

Amelia and her dad have a decided to set a challenge every Friday, called ‘Fantastic Word Friday’. They each choose a word and learn the meaning of it, memorise it over the weekend and challenge each other the following Friday before moving onto another new word! The first word was ‘Indispensable’! 

See Amelia’s full video here.
