So, today I'm going to
She can READ!
I've suspected she was close. She even read "Barbie Pet Vet" to her daddy a week ago...but that's a book she's heard many times, so I wasn't sure. But last night, she read a new book cover to cover (with a little help of course):
For a long while, she fought me to even practice her sight words or read her decodables...so I tried some *eh hem* decoding of my own. This is what I finally asked: "Are you scared if you learn to read that I won't read to you anymore?"
Nailed it. I made it clear that I wouldn't stop reading to her until she didn't want me to anymore (which I hope is a long time)!
After that conversation, she has been more than willing. I am one proud mama!
Another school "dilemma" we've come across is the amount of papers that come home! We thought Sunday school/Wednesday night was a lot...it's nothing compared to school papers. So, we needed some way to organize.
Right now, I'm throwing all papers into a decorative box in my office. At the end of the month, I plan to take photos of the papers, pick a few to keep and get rid of the rest.
And finally, a fun piece of artwork. Pretty sure Mrs. Boldt will need a decorative box and camera as well, with the amount of art she gets from my little Picasso.
