Soooo… Gavin has been doing such a great job with making the sounds of each letter and Carter has been helping him along that we decided to start asking Carter to sound out some words. Kind of a natural progression of things.
And Carter is doing it – we have given him some three and four letter words (some easy, some hard) and he is reading! He still has a LONG ways to go to be able to knock off a book or anything, but I am impressed with how quickly he picked it up – I figured it would still be awhile before he even had any interest in doing this. So now every day we work on a few new words!
