Holy coco mo, we have another reader in the house! Nicky has been working on reading for a while now and could occasionally sound out a word but would mostly guess it based on the context/picture. Something clicked this week and he suddenly started really trying to sound out words. Nicky’s style is that he won’t practice something externally unless he’s pretty sure he can do it so I knew we must be getting close. Sure enough, tonight he was reading all the words we gave him and was kept asking for more. I stumped him with “star”…he thought it was “satr” but right after this video ended he grabbed an n to turn it into “saturn” (spelled “satrn”). Creative problem solving!
