Independent Reading

October 16, 2009

Sean will be 5 in a couple of months.  He’s not ‘officially’ old enough for school, but we started what I call "Slow and Steady Kindergarten" with him this year.  He’s never had much interest at all in writing, but he has known his letters for a long time and was doing basic reading without any help.  I figured with any luck, he’d be reading well by the end of the school year next spring and would be ready for first grade next fall.  Sean must have decided that time line just did not work for him.  He’s reading like a mad man and I’m stunned at his comprehension level.  He loves to read out loud too, so he blesses us with several books a day.  Yesterday, he had daddy all to himself for just over an hour and read a nice stack of books to him.  Andrew couldn’t help but notice that Sean doesn’t sit very still while he’s reading, so he grabbed the camera and snapped off a few shots. 

Look in a Book

in a book
and you will see
and magic
and mystery.

in a book
and you will find
and nonsense
of every kind.

in a book
and you will know
the things
that can help you grow.
