Finn and Rhys are interested in learning how to read lately. It is fascinating to see how they are going about their process in different ways.
Rhys likes to flip through picture and graphic novels, looking at pictures to have an idea of what the words on the pages say. He sounds out a word here and there, and shows us when he feels confident enough to see if he got it right. He often does!
Finn started by asking for reading practice time with a book. He has a hard time focusing for more than a minute. We tried a few reading games on the tablet, and he got into one that was very helpful at the basics. We started practice reading again and everyday he improves, with more stamina to stick it out. He’s gotten some sight words down in the process.
