When Butterfly first started attending school in a traditional setting again in 6th grade, she had a hard time learning all the facts presented in book format. We had done so much of her learning in a hands-on way that lists of facts were meaningless and overwhelming to her. So, each weekend, she would bring home whatever book she was struggling the most in and we would do the projects and activities that were looked over. Here, she was making a salt map to learn the names for land and water such as inlet, peninsula, butte, etc. At the beginning of the day, she was overwhelmed and thought she would never get it, she thought she was stupid and hated school. When she finished the map, she knew all the names and loved learning again. After a few weeks, we didn't need to do so much of this and she was able to learn the facts in the way they were presented at school.
