For over a year, Andrew has been able to sound out words, but he's lacked fluency--or the motivation to develop it. I haven't wanted to push him, especially when baby arrived. ("But if I can read, you won't read to me anymore...")
This week, he made a breakthrough. We were lying on my bed looking at books when he told us to close our eyes and imagine we were back in the days before television. Then he started narrating with expression. He read twenty-five pages before we made him stop. Last night I went in to turn out his light. This is what I saw.
This is my entry to win a camera in the "Capture the Educational Moment" Contest sponsored by Spunky and Academic Superstore. I published this post earlier in the week, but when I heard about the contest, I realized this was perhaps the perfect photo : )
