On the first day of third grade, my son came home with a large flash card. Written on it was one word: Sagacious
I’ll be honest. I couldn't pronounce it since I had never seen or heard the word and well, I was very tired... My son proceeds to tell me that he is a "Sagacious Learner" and that he is clever and intelligent and actively learning about the world around him.
That flash card is still taped to the wall in his bedroom. Teaching Win Ms. Kelley! You continue to be an inspiration at our house.
This one instance has helped to define how I work with my son. Yes, he needed to learn to read, but now the focus was on learning to the best of his abilities, not just reading. I want him to always see himself as a Sagacious Learner. He is Dyslexic. He's both; The Sagacious Dyslexic.
I am incredibly thankful for those who have helped me navigate the ways to best support my son in his learning while addressing his struggles with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. We're still learning. The Sagacious Dyslexic is my effort to share what I've learned with others facing similar challenges. I hope that you find something that helps you best support your child become the Sagacious Learner I know they can become whether it's through services, resources or shared stories! Our children succeed when we work together.
