for the past 5 days, rachel and i have been working out of a reading curriculum book. she's having a blast so far and she's doing really well. (and please note, she's not even 4 yet. i'm just a little proud of her.)
here is our book. she calls it her "grown-up school book."
these are 3 out of the 4 letters she knows, as of day 5. i won't even tell you what they are because i'll bet you can decipher her big sloppy letters. this is a sample of our "dictation exercise." i just made it up to see if she could do it. she can. so we do it. i say the sound and she writes the letter. she got an A+.
ok, i know this isn't a real word (i already know how to read, so there), but it's the first thing my girl sounded out for herself, ever. so i had to share.
she can't resist getting a little artsy with her new-found knowledge.
she's such a big kid!
