Reading- Sounding out words

Every night Lil Bit and I read a book together. I’ll read most of the words, but on each page, i’ll pick a word that she will need to sound out and read for herself. I won’t do it for her and we sit on the page and with the word until she gets it.

Tonight we read ‘What is a Princess?’ which is a Step Into Reading book (Step 1) She did surprisingly well! I’m always amazed at how fast she learns and how smart she is. Even in her Pre-K class, she was known as being at the top of her class and catching on easily.

From this book, she read: big, books, dress, up, fun, ship, land, sing.

We’ve also been reading ‘Chicka Chicka A, B, C’ , but it’s hard to know if she’s reading the words or just reciting from memory. We’ll keep on it.

My lil smarty pants! 🙂
