Travis Is Reading!
Travis is an early emergent reader! When it's time for him to read a new book, Ken or I will model the first page, allowing him to read words he already knows, then introducing the new words. From there, he takes it and flies, as you can see. At the beginning of the video, you see Travis tell me "No! Look at me." I was trying to feed him a word and he would have none of it. Often, if he gets stuck on a word and we tell him, he will start the page all over again, because he wants to read it all by himself.
Exciting moments like that--when a child starts reading on their own--are why I taught 30 years of my 34 in first grade. I know it now happens in kindergarten for most, but back then it was most often in first grade.ReplyDelete
