Learning to Read

There is no greater joy than that moment when a young child realizes that they can read! One of our young ladies surprised herself early in December by reading her math problems. “I can read, Ms. Leanna, I can read!”

Most of our first graders are very motivated and making great progress and we definitely have a couple of reading superstars! Another young student and I wrote a letter to her teacher, requesting a copy of the first grade reading words used by the school district. The first graders were so thrilled they all took home word cards to practice during the Christmas break!
