I was right.

I sent an email to the She-Ex on Friday. It was after I sent the programme of study for BG. That all looked doable, but it was messy. I said, well, she's a kinesthetic child, leaving out that she was haptic probably, this is what she needs, your mother will just have to cope. And really, there's nothing that messy.

I got an email back saying she would figure it out, and a load of other random bits and pieces, mainly to do with BG making her something for Mothers Day (I was really good and didn't mention Fathers Day at all which we have seen NOTHING for, ever.) and random stuff like getting a new embroidery design for the machine. I don't know what kind of machine, but I know there's machines that do your embroidery for you - so why bother? How craftsman is that? Um. It's not lol! But then I feel like I'm cheating when I use the sewing machine for quilting, and I'm just stitching the bits together with it. Anyway.

She also said that there were parts of the email she didn't understand. Fair enough, although they could be googled they are technical words. I explained kinesthetic, and tactile, and gave a brief explaination of the 5 types of learning. (This is now Saturday, after having to resend the email)

And then I said that she would need to be careful because when she modelled writing for BG, she would need to make sure that she got it all correct. I think I've upset her. I said I thought I would in the email, but it needed saying. The emails we get are lacking in punctuation and spelling as well in some cases. BG needs accurate modelling. When R and I were cleaning out the place they lived in together we found bits and pieces that she had written, and again the punctuation and so on were lacking. But I know she can do it when she tries - she's not stupid, and I've never said she was.

I've sent her the Brain Gym stuff I have for Kinesthetic learners anyway. I need to do another blog post on Learning Styles I think! I'll add it to the list.
