Day two of using this new print and for the first time since she started reading simple words and sentences, my daughter began predictive reading. Where she used to sound out each letter (l – o – n – g… long) this morning she started to think ahead of the individual sounds (l – ong… long). This is a massive step for her, and I am very proud. It also means that I have set my text at the correct level for her. Perhaps it’s too early to crow too loud, but I believe she has set her own level for future reading goals.
