Heartfelt Praise

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.

    Great news!! The hard work is starting to pay off. Keep up the effort. And the praise (she deserves it!)

    Thanks Chris. She does deserve it. She is progressing so well considering that since term began again I have had an average of about 2 or 3 hours a day with her on weekdays. She doesn’t get the language exposure she needs from me (TV progs. make up for that somewhat) but she is still forging ahead. Despite the initial strain on the morning schedule, I believe that the 10 minute study routine we started during the summer is to thank for this. That and her ‘can do’ attitude.
