Just had to share, DD Sophia brought me 4 drawings today. They were so adorable and I was so proud. She is a 1st grader who is just catching the reading 'bug'. She has known some things for the last year, but anytime she hit a snag and couldn't read something she was trying, she would quit wanting to read. It's just been in the last couple months she tries to read everything, and now she is experimenting with spelling everything as well. Most the time she doesn't want you to help her spell it either. Notice a pattern? ha Ahhh, my independent soul of a child... My other DD was reading before kindergarten, different temperaments they have. I love watching a child 'get' something, you know? That is why I LOVE homeschooling. I get to see all the 'firsts'.
Anyway, I thought her pictures were worth a blog entry (first question she asked of course was 'are you going to scan them mommy?' A girl after my own heart.) Notice ladybug is said latebug (say the E as an E) and did you know dragonfly was spelled with a 'J'?
By the way, I was visiting one of my FAVORITE blogs today - Misty Eyed Art (Misty Mawn), and she mentioned a link to a reading site StarFall. My daughter has been hogging the computer all day, ever since. I'm so excited we found the site! Thanks Misty!
