Singing and Reading...

The Kiddo pretends he learns stuff in school but I think all he really does is play and sing...

The stuff he learns at home* is so much more important... Well okay, I suppose that's not really accurate *chuckle* He was reading before the school year started but he has gotten a LOT better at it with what Mrs. S has taught him. The spelling thing, yeah he was doing that on his own too.. if he can sound out a word he can spell it... but he's in bad trouble when they get to words that aren't spelled the way they sound and Mrs. S has helped a lot with that too.

The first four words are from two weeks ago, they tested on them last Monday and he got 100%. The second four words were last week, they tested on them this week and I assume he got 100% (we haven't seen the 'graded' paper yet). The last four are this weeks words that he will test on next Monday. He really rocks spelling.

Almost every day as we head off to school we play a spelling game. I ask him a word, then he asks me one. The words are NOT limited to his spelling test words. He loves the game, and he's really good at it. In the video I should have had him spell smart, he nailed that yesterday (it was my bonus round challenge word for him).

WOW! That kid can read very well! Way to go, Kiddo! (The spelling's not bad either, but I can remember my own kids' reading at certain ages better than their spelling, so I know how good that reading is.)

The funny thing is that he's only reading at about 50% there, he's usually better :) I think he gets his word skills from his grannie, I know he doesn't get his spelling from ME
