Call me a troll all you want, but I'm astonished right now.
Is it normal for them to be able to read the words, even if they don't understand the sentence?
Lots of young children can decode words. True reading requires comprehension of what they read.
Quoting AmaliaD:Ah huh...... And then he understood it .....right! Thanks for the laugh.
I just said right above you that she didn't understand the sentence.
I'm asking if it's normal for them to be able to read the word.
Don't be such a bitch.
I'm 30 years old and college educated and I don't even know what "collier" and "choler" mean without looking them up.
5 year olds generally cannot discern words like "runn'st" even in context because it is above their comprehension level. Overall, act 1 scene 1 isn't a hard read, but....
Why don't you give your child a more age appropriate book?
My kids could do that at age five so nothing new
Whoopie, my daughter was doing that a year old.
why would you be astonished? Its your child, are you not aware of what they can do?
My daughter started reading at age 3.She truely understood everything up to the age of 5.I had her tested at the age of 7.They told me if she can read a newspaper and understand everything she read,she has the mentality of an 18 year old. She always loved to read,I never stoped her.She preferred books over toys.
We need more children to stop being lazy(boob tube kids)and encourage them to read more,we would have a better world-I would hope....lol
