My little girl is a reader!!!
She’s been reading sight words and trying to sound some bigger words out for awhile now, but in the past week or two she’s been reading nonstop. I’m so proud of her!
One of the best things is how excited she is about “helping” at bedtime with her little brother. She loves to be the big grown-up girl tucking her brother in, reading him stories, and then sing-shouting lullabies in his face.
The reading has been a good development. Her lullaby technique needs a little work. Screaming, “BLAH BLAH BLACK SHEEP” in H’s face just doesn’t seem to be relaxing to him.
What she’s reading now:
This boxed set has been one of the best purchases we’ve ever made. It’s the Usbourne “Very First Reader” set and it’s perfect for kids who are just getting their confidence with sight words and reading. The set has 15 books and each book progresses just a tiny bit in difficulty and vocabulary.
