Today, for the very first time, it clicked with Ramona (2/02) that she could say the sound of each letter and then blend them together to make a recognizable word. She read MAP, MAT, SAT, SIT, and FUN.<br><br>
We were reading a Jack and Annie book and it had the word MAP in it. She started saying "Map ... MMMM AAAA PPPP ... map .... MMMM AAAA PPPP." So after we were done with reading I got the MagnaDoodle and wrote HAT, SAM, and MAP and said, "Which one says MAP?" She pointed right to it. Then I did the same with HAT and SAM. I think she was using first letter clues for those.<br><br>
Then I wrote MAP and she sounded it out. I did the same for the other four words. She was pretty tired by the time we got to FUN, but since she had been to her first Spanish class this morning and learned to count to five, I said, "Let's read this one and then you will have "cinqo" words for the day!"<br><br>
She was very excited when I said, "Ramona, you are learning to read!"<br><br>
Namaste!

Yay! How exciting! Isn't if fun to watch them really "get" something and have a natural desire to learn even more? So cool!
