Today has been a fairly good school day! We got through most our school work, with little effort on the kids part and with minimal help from me.
Big news on the reading front. Thing Two brought down "Duck on a Bike" by David Shannon and read to me. This is the same boy, that even through the summer, was convinced he could not read. It may not be a chapter book, but for really just "getting" how to read, it's a descent length book for a new reader. He read about 98% of the book correctly. Guess it's time to get some more challenging books for him. I might just be able to convince him to try reading "The Magic Tree House" series, working on a chapter a day.
It really is exciting to see my kids taking off in a new or difficult subject. Love the front row seats.
