It's the final week of the two weeks break. Glad to have a break from work. Reese is having fun playing at home minus the Ipad for a few days which is a good thing. He plays with his toys, reads, draws and watch some cartoons. He was ban from the Ipad for 3 days for misbehaving... hehehe....
Lately I realized that Reese will read anything that he picks up. Read as in really reading the words. Previously, he will only look at pictures and read when I asked him to. Reading is no longer a task but enjoyment for him. He reads very quickly and so fast that he will miss out words along the way or add in his own words! He is capable of reading chapter books but prefers books with lots of illustration. When we go out, he will read signs, prints and etc. and often asked the meanings of words, phases and sentences.
When we do out studies, Reese does the reading instead of me now. My role is to supervise and explain things to him. I am so pleased with his reading progress. With him reading willingly, he is learning more and more things from books. Whenever I pick him up from school, he is usually reading quietly at the reading corner. Reese loves science and he will tell us many things that he picked up from the 'I Wonder Why' series. I have about 5 of these books in the car for him to read and rotate the titles every now and then. We are reading 1 new story book a day for the past few days. He is currently obsessed with the book 'Pompeii Buried Alive' (Step into Reading series Step 4).
Tested his reading level a few weeks back and he is now reading at Grade 3 level.
