Dyslexia

As with other learning disabilities, dyslexia is a lifelong challenge. This language-based processing disorder can hinder reading, writing, spelling and sometimes even speaking. Dyslexia is not a sign of poor intelligence or laziness or the result of impaired hearing or vision. Children and adults with dyslexia have a neurological disorder that causes their brains to process and interpret information differently.

This link from NCLD has the following topics concerning dyslexia:

Cheesy Jokes and Serious Thoughts for the Garden (These May Bug You)

Go outside--nature calls! Recent research reveals what we know in our souls already, that people, especially children, need to frequently be outside relating to the natural world. There's even a classification when kids don't go outside enough:

Nature Deficit Syndrome http://www.education.com/topic/nature-deficit-disorder/

Trees, sky, grass, critters, breezes on our face, birdsong--more than therapeutic--these are essential for us to function.

Growing Up Free: Inspiring a Love of Nature

So, get outside nature's calling yelling, "Let's play!"

Now for some silly.

How do snails fight each other?    They slug it out.

Hello, honey.

You wouldn't say that to my face!


What did the bee say to the flower?

Hello honey.


Here's a cool site for lots of activities:

Why do bees hum? Because they can't remember the words.


What silly jokes....
What is the difference between a fly and a bird?
A bird can fly but a fly can't bird!


To bee, or not to bee...
Two flies are on the porch. Which one is an actor?
(The one on the screen!)








                                                    What do insects learn at school?
                                                                Mothmatics!





Woops, they misspelled it on the bottle and glass.

Frosted glass, please.



What do frogs drink?
          Croak a Cola











A rose is a rose, etc.

But I'm really such a nice guy.



What do you get if you cross a tarantula and a rose?






                                              
 (I'm not sure, but I wouldn't try smelling it!)
  









Always jokes about the legs.

I'm already a walkie-talkie-er-walkie flyie
What do you get if you cross a centipede and a parrot?

 (A walkie-talkie!)
