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.
