Today Vinze did fine with writing for the most part but I could tell it was going to be one of "those" days when he began questioning the second page. I made the mistake of saying that today we were going to work on "reading directions by yourself" to see if you can do it. I picked today because the work was self explanatory but...he went into a crying I explained it. I wish I knew if this was for real or if he is just needing some attention or is scared to try new things. Maybe it's a little of both. I know Brise didn't want to try things if he thought he'd get it wrong so maybe that's what is going on here. Anyway...
