Ever since starting school, Eli has been eager to read. He wants to sound out words constantly and asks how EVERYTHING is spelled, which is a good thing. The problem is, I never had phonics. I am literally the worst speller in the world..in case regular typos on this blog hadn't already tipped you off to that embarrassing fact.
Lucky for me, Eli's school hosted a Reading Mastery Night to teach parents how to reinforce the curriculum at home. I'm certain that Eric will still do the majority of homework since he can actually sound out a word, but I feel much more prepared to help.
Eli and his fellow Kindergarteners demonstrated the curriculum, and I was so impressed with what they had already learned. I am so eager to watch the kids grow throughout the school year. I know I'm new at this whole school thing, but I'm having a lot of fun and look forward to a few upcoming and exciting events that include: Mid-Evil Dress Up Day, Fall Festival, Community Walk Field Trip and FALL BREAK!!
Oh, and I can't forget this little lady. She's always along for the ride!
