I've been meaning to post a video of Natalie reading for you...but I haven't found the time until everyone is off school. Hopefully I'll get to all the other projects I've been meaning to do during the school break, but for now, let's check this off the list.
We are so pleased with how Natalie's reading has improved since she started kindergarten (she even got an award!)...she was reading single words before, but now she's reading sentences, although, as you will see, she still needs practice going directly to the next line and not getting distracted by other things on the page or in the room. These stories are practice stories from school, and I think it helps that there are no pictures on the page, because pictures would distract Natalie even more. But she does pretty well with books with pictures too.
Enough, here's the video!
