I love teaching my kids how to read. It is 100% one of my favorite jobs as a mom. That isn’t to say it’s easy or terribly rewarding in the beginning, but once they read, a whole WORLD is open up to them. Some longtime readers might remember this video with Spencer:
Paige was just finshing up with that book and she’s almost 4 (although about a month away when I took this)…. but still a great reader. I now present, Paige — my reader.
So, would people be interested in my thoughts on teaching kids how to read? I think a lot of it is just doing it over, and over and over — starting when they’re small, putting books into their routine. But, there’s more to my madness then that. Anyone want to hear it?
