I haven’t done many posts about homeschool lately. This week will be week 9 for us, so the end of our first quarter and I’ll try to get something together and post it this week. It’s hard because I feel like there is so much to say, I don’t know where to start.
But today Madison did something for the first time that I really wanted to share. We have been working really hard on reading – and she is getting really good at reading. I am so proud of her. Last week, we were at someone’s house and she started reading one of their books. I had just mentioned that I am homeschooling her and one of the parents said “Well, it looks like that is really working for you. She’s a great reader.”
But anyway, today, for the first time, Madison went to the bookshelf and picked up a book and started reading it just for fun while I was on the phone. Yeah! It was Go Dog Go. And she read the whole book on her own – well, she did ask me about two words, but to me, that is great success. Not only that she could read the whole book, but she wanted to. For fun. Yeah!
