Yesterday was a big day for us. My blood count doubled and Joshua read his first book!!! Something I wasn't even ready for. I know was prepping him and teaching his letters but I didn't expect him to pick up his first Phonetic Storybook Reader 1. We weren't suppose to get to the book for another 2 weeks. He read 22 pages in one sitting. We are very proud of him. He has been very diligent in his studies.
We are using the Sing, Spell, Read & Write 1st grade program. I thought it would take us a few years to go through but I think he will finish right on time next year. We decided to start kindergarten early because he was showing signs of readiness. I truly wasn't sure if he was ready but he has proved himself. I told him if he can read by summer, then he can go into first grade this fall. I can see he is like his mom. When we put our minds to accomplish a goal; we go after it!
