Reading is Kicking In

Dan reading with M before supper

Most nights before supper, M reads to Dan. Three weeks ago they were excited that M could read Katie and the Big Snow – Lexile about 2 grades behind.

Closer look at the readers

A few weeks ago Dan and K were at the Capron Park Zoo, and brought back an Usborne book about snakes.

Really close view of M's hand

M has been reading me a paragraph or two a day from the snake book, (whose Lexile score is grade level!) with glasses and grey Irlen overlay, he goes quickly. Those pesky lines still jump about, d and b still switch places, English is still not a transparent written code.

But you should here him read the word ‘the’ without stumbling, and sheet music is less annoying too!
