Writing things out and saying them out loud at the same time helps, too. For example, I had my students practice math facts by writing and saying each fact. They would do 2 x 3 = 6, 2 x 3 = 6, etc. until they had written them five times; then they would go to 2 x 4 = 8 and do that five times. It really does help. When I am trying to memorize a part for Elks contests, I do it a paragraph or a few sentences at a time. Once I memorize the paragraph, I start on another one and practice the first one in addition to the new one. How many codes do you have to learn? You can also make up a rhyme to go with the code. For example for 4 X 4 = 16: Want to drive a four by four truck, Unless you are 16 you are out of luck! You could also think about setting the codes to music such as Old MacDonald Had a Farm or even It's a Small World, LOL!

we need to take another family picture soon, it has been a few years. Used to do it every year when the kids were small.
Enjoy your day!

Well, there is a test, I am gessing a multiple choice test as that is how the quizzes have been. I think it is probably going to be on the different things we have learned about writing, such as what kind of voice you are writing in, (passive first person, etc) and other technical stuff like that. xo

My throat is starting to hurt again! On top of going to bed last night with a sore throat I got a wake up call around 12:30 am from my 20 year old cousin who was upset about his puppy being sick and wanted some advice. I am not a vet but I guess he knows I love animals and work with them at the feed store. I felt really bad because the phone was breaking up last night and I suggested that he googles the symptoms online and I will call him in the morning. I wish I could have helped him last night but we live so far away and I wasn't sure what to do. I guess he just wanted to talk to someone so that was okay with me! I got a hold of him this morning and the puppy seems to be doing better. He apologized for waking me up but I understood he was upset. Anyway, not much sleep last night but things happen!

Right now I am busy with my granddaughter so after she leaves I am going to get some rest and get better!
