Both my girls have always loved books. Since they were about 2 months old we have gone to the library weekly and read at least 4 books a day. Ashlyn started reading pretty young and hasn’t stopped. I wasn’t sure Emily was going to have the same desire to read but about a month ago she started picking out words from the books we were reading. I started doing sight words with her (the post it ones from Target) and now she is unstoppable. I’m so proud of her.
The other day while I was giving Ashlyn a spelling test, I gave Emily a sight word activity as well. I wrote out 7 of her words and then gave her some letter stickers I found in the Target dollar section. The only problem is they are all up case but it made for a good teachable moment. She had to find the letters to make her words. She loved it!
So proud of herself!
