Holy Crap! Riley can read!

In : General, Posted by on Dec.12, 2008

I went to read Riley her nightly books, and she read the title of one of the books by sounding it out.  I opened up the book and said that we should read it together.  But when I did that, I realized it was way too hard.  I told Riley we should read Dragon Egg instead.  This is one of the Level 1 reading books.

She is really good at phonics, and so I was prepared to sound out all of the words.  Not necessary.  She read them all.  She made a few mistakes, but she knew about 95% of the words.  She struggled with: rolls, along, through, flies and past.  She knew by sight: the, a, dragon, egg, castle, road, town, waiting.  She sounded it out bang and hill.  It was really cool.  I will see if I can get some video of her reading it or another book.

Photos from her concert and school birthday party coming soon.

We had our adult Christmas Party this past Saturday night.  There are no pictures from that, and that is a good thing!

However, the kid Christmas Party was also this past weekend, and cuteness abounds here.
