I know most of you know how much my oldest struggled to learn to read. He finally turned that corner and was able to read well..he just was 'not a fan' of reading. I kept reading to him and encouraging him to read outside of school. I also obviously had him read to me for short periods of time during school.
I have kind of laid off him lately and not pushed about the reading.
Last Saturday he walked to the book shelf with all the chapter books pick one and started reading! he read on it all weekend and finished it last night! He told me he wants to start another one this morning.
I'm so proud! I want to shout it from the roof tops..but I can't..he is the type of kid that if i make a big deal out of it..then he may stop. So I'm happily sitting on my hands and holding my breath while he reads away. lol
