Read His First Book
Bob books are amazing! And Hunter Read His First Book with the help of them! It is no secret. I hate teaching kids to read. It is so mind-numbing for me and frustrating. Yet, I press on and I teach. I’ve taught every single child to read.
I pulled this out because we had been working on -at words for a couple of weeks. We recorded him reading it so we could send it to his teachers. He was so proud of himself and we are so proud of him.
He gets the sound it out and runs it together mode of teaching to read. My other kids didn’t necessarily get that concept. Also, I do not teach phonics because NO WAY. We are going to try and video it again so I can post it here.
He has treatment this past Friday, so I am mentally prepared for that. Sadly, he is also aware and so his behavior has been off. He is more anxious and less willing to do things. I hope he will read it again. As he does, the book becomes easier to read and flows better. Honestly, it gives more confidence when things just roll off the tongue.
My kid that was not supposed to be here is still here. He is still playing, learning, loving, and now reading! I can honestly tell OMS to kiss my a$$. It has no power over my son anymore!
