Wylie and Reading

I haven't posted in a very long time.
Mainly because Kindergarten started and we have been very busy reading and learning and reading and doing maths and reading and doing science experiments and reading and learning new games and well TONS of reading.

In January Wylie had officially zoomed through and completed all the Kindergarten reading books in his class curricula. His book selections from the library moved from books to have us read to him to more non-fiction books that he could read and explore on his own. These ranged from the DK Eyewitness series to National Geographics. He also brought home books that he was reading in class and wanted more. These were the Henry and Mudge books.

It is now the beginning of May. Wylie is reading currently at a 4th grade level and his teacher is working to find curricula to engage He still trips over words and wants us to read to him. In fact he will get his pajamas on early so that he can enjoy a bit of television and still have time to be read to at bedtime. He doesn't give up his reading time and has been known to wake up in the middle of the night completely upset he didn't get his book at bed. Of course the waking up part is usually because it has been such a busy day he fell asleep before he could be read to!

We will share interesting books that we are reading soon.
