X and C worked on copywork.

Malachi read DK level 1 Duckling Days, read 4 pages.
Mariah read a beginner beginner bk and a story from Faith and Freedom Reader.
Chiara read a passage aloud to me from Rakkerty Tam, her pronunciation has improved.

Gave the three older dc tests that we didn’t manage on Friday, due to the auction. C did very well D and X didn’t. Had a crying session with X, he struggles to hear the consonant blends and the correct vowels at times also. D got most wrong but I think he didn’t revise them well.

C did dictation, passage from Redwall, only 4 mistakes.
