E(3) LOVES to do reading work! I do NOT make her do this work...I give her the opportunity, and she either takes it or doesn't. If she doesn't want to do the work, that is absolutely fine. I follow her lead, and right now she wants to read like her big sister! (but she spends most of her time engaged in pretend play, listening to us read books to her, and playing outside...she spends less than 15 minutes a day doing reading work and only about 3 days a week....I don't want to push reading on her as it is not really developmentally appropriate for a 3 year old. However, since she wants to read desperately, I'm not going to deny her. She's having fun, and that is what is most important!)
She loved reading simple words using the sandpaper letters last week!
E loves the spinny speller!
