Reading and the First Book!
Blueberry read her first book to me today!!! I should say, before we all sound too impressive, she read the designated "child" words (the ones in red) to me from a book we read together. Up to this point, we have sounded out the red words together, while I read the black words. That progressed to her reading all the red words, but there were only a few per story. The story this morning gave her the edge -- more red words than black and a greater variety of them (instead of the same word repeated throughout the story). I was so impressed that she was able to move from one word to another rather seemlessly, this being the first time all the words we have been learning were used in the same story.
