This morning, I woke up to the sound of my daughter reading aloud to herself in her room.
Of all the sounds one could hear in the morning, this has to rank near the top of the list. I’m so proud of her. She’s worked very hard at reading, and it’s clear that the light bulb has come on in recent weeks.
I find it very interesting; literacy experts still aren’t quite sure what causes people to be able to read. Their best advice is something close to “surround them with books and workbooks, and eventually they’ll get it.”
I’m happy to say that my daughter is very much getting it.
