Bumping again. DD's reading confidence is taking off. She's had a decent sight word vocab and been decoding cvc words for almost two years now but she is a perfectionist and since she can't read with adult fluency has until recently stubbornly believed she can't read. Today we headed off to the library and she pulled an early reader off the shelf and read it aloud. I mean LOUD lol, loud enough for the librarian and some other patrons to hear. For a perfectionist who doesn't even like to read in front of us (she'll sit with a book and read it to herself but stop if she thinks we know what she is doing) this is huge Tonight after mr. 17 months went to sleep we pulled out the cuisenaire rods and played "differences" from moominmama's pre-Miquon book. She really enjoyed it so of course now I'm wracked with guilt that I can't meet her educational needs enough when he is awake. Sigh. Her favourite thing of late is the electronics kit we picked up from a local homeschool market day for four dollars she would use that thing all day if she could, but again. Toddler unfriendly!
Do you have a link to that rod book? I can not seem to find it.
