i wasnt sure if mine could, but the other day i think she proved that she could. we were walking inside, and had a flyer on the door. it was for some pizza place, anyway she grabbed it and said "Look a little car, and a building." There were pictures of these on the flyer. Then she said "Pizza" and even though it was a pizza flyer, there were no pictures of pizza on it. It just said "PIZZA" in big lettering.
Then not long ago, I was teaching my 2 year old the alphabet by writing each letter individually and asking her what the letter was. My 4 year old decided to help. Just to see, I wrote the word "MOMMY" and she said "Mommy." Same with daddy, baby, and of course her own name, but she's known how to read, write and spell her own name since she was 3.
She goes to school, so at first I thought maybe she just knew what these words looked like but wasn't actually reading them. But the other day with the pizza thing really got me thinking! Sometimes as we read books together she says she doesn't know any of the words, even some of the ones like baby or mommy. I still don't know if she can read some words or just "recognize" some words.
So, can yours read?
