Ms Sunshine has just begun to read. She has been learning phonics and blending for more than a year now and something clicked in her one sudden sunny summer day… everything just came together! She started to read her readers pretty fluently!
While we pick up a reader to practise her reading from time to time, I decided to ‘promote’ her to chapter books for our reading time as well. So when we were in the states recently, we popped by Barnes and Nobles and bought our first chapter book ‘Ivy and Bean’ :). She was excited and couldn’t wait to get started when we are back in Singapore.
One morning, back on our sunny island, we took out the book for our together reads. I was just as excited as she was. I read and read and read. She listened and listened… not a word from her. I read five chapters in one sitting and I was getting a little tired. So I stopped and suggested we read another day. No comments from her.
