Friday tutoring time again

Katlyn is very frustrating. We have been working on the same sentence for over half an hour. Twenty one words, and no matter how many times we read it together or talk about the words and the letters in them, she doesn't remember by the next time we read the sentence.

Once there was a woman who loved her dog so much that she could hardly bear to be away from her.

We've broken it up into lines, and she still can't master it. I can't help this girl.

Now we're working on something else. Put in the word that fits the best.

The ___ play ball. (boy, boys)
I see ________ (bag, bags)

Nope, she's looking at the second sentence and reading "the girl at the store" -- just making it up, out of nowhere.

She also cannot physically put a "d" at the end of a word. "Loved," "end," and "kind" become "love," "en," and "kine." We worked for ten minutes just trying to practice saying "d" and then saying "d" at the end of words. No dice.
