Lola is reading--really reading. She's quickly moved beyond sight words in the first quarter of Kindergarten and has moved on to phonics. Each week, she gets several books sent home through the reading series at school. Each builds on the last and we are so encouraged by how her reading is getting stronger by the day!
Johnny is focusing on his sight words, and has really fallen in love with books as of late. While Lola would sit on our laps and let us read to her constantly, Johnny was never all that interested. Until recently. He loves pulling books off the self and opening them up, and brining them to us so he can be read to.
He is obsessed with "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom"--it's a classic, with a repetative tale. And since they both know the alphabet so well, it's familiar. Lola can hear something once, and repeat it. She half reads/half repeats the story from memory, but Johnny doesn't care. All he knows is big sis is reading his favorite book.
