Yes, it is true I am one of those moms. I make my kids do schoolwork during the summer. Not a lot, but a little every day, so they don’t forget everything over the summer. The other night I heard Ellie in her bed trying to sound out words to a story. Up until now I have just been going over flash cards with sight words on them, no actual books. So, after I heard her, I got this novel idea.(no pun intended 🙂 ) Maybe we should try books. We did and she is really reading. First grade will be great! This process always amazes me. I remember this with the boys. One day they are these little people who aren’t reading and then all of a sudden they are reading everything.
They are growing so fast. Can’t stay on this thought too long, or I will get weepy. Right now I am just marveling in the fact my baby is reading.
