  • I don't think he was actually reading but had the stories memorized since I had read the same book a dozen times.

  • Mine too. Haha, the problem now is that I can't fib when I am flipping past her cartoons on the channel guide because she can read enough to know that it says Spongebob or Yo Gabba Gabba.

  • My older boys could actually read at 3. They are 16 & 17 now and hate reading. My 5 year old can read and figure out how to sound out words he doesn't know and thankfully he loves to read.

  • Wow, lovinangels, that is good. I haven't counted how many words mine can read yet but I'd guess about 20. I am focusing on phonetics so she can sound out any word. She seems to be taking to that pretty well.

    What do you do to help facilitate learning to read? (that goes for anyone)

  • Yes - we got him a library card then so he wouldn't have to read the same books over and over.
