I knew one of the best things about homeschooling was going to see Mini-Me "get it". Whatever IT was. Tonight it was reading.
We are using the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons after it was recommended by more than a few HSing moms. Since we had company over today, we didn't get around to the reading lesson until about 7:30pm. (Thank goodness they only take about 15 minutes each.) So, as we get to the end I see her face completely light up. She points to a word several inches down on the page and just sounds it out and then says it fast.
After I encouraged her she did it with every other word she could read with the limited number of letter sounds we have learned. I don't know that I have ever seen her that excited. She has been so ready to learn to read. I couldn't be more proud!
