Emily is really coming along with her reading. It is truly amazing and inspiring to watch the work and systems of Mrs. B, her teacher, translate into Emily actually being able to sound out words. Each week she brings home a different book that she is supposed to try and read with a parent. Today she read the whole thing to me with no help. She had to sound out a couple of words. The rest she knew by sight.
Me: Emmy, you're doing so well with your reading. I think you'll be reading really, really well by the end of summer holidays!
Emily: And I'll be so stressed out!
