My sweet #2 read a story to ME at bedtime tonight. This was the first time he read the whole little book in one sitting. And he did it beautifully. There are some issues with b,p, and d, but I know that will improve with time. We'll keep practicing with this level of Bob and other phonics readers for a couple of weeks, and then it will be time to move on in phonics. But since he's accomplished all of the phonics for MFW Kindergarten, we'll have to get our next thing ordered so it can get here.
After I'd read It's really hard being a bunny, he read Hot Pot to me, and I read Jan Brett's Annie and the Wild Animals to him (that promoted a discussion of the behavior of pregnant mommies, by the way). THEN, he said, "Mommy, will you leave my light on so I can read to myself, please?"
Oh my. A child after my own heart. I've read myself to sleep almost every night since I learned to read, and now he wants to read himself to sleep, too. It just tickles me. :)
