A Big DAY!!!

Jay has been reading for awhile.  He will read on his own, but mostly likes to have me there to help him along.  He's good at sounding things out, but sometimes that slows down his reading comprehension.  Today is a big day because he sat down with all the BOB books and read them on his own (though I was in the same room) because HE WANTED TO!  He was thrilled to finish each story and I could tell he was comprehending the stories because he would talk about and giggle in the right places :)

If you haven't seen or heard of the BOB books, they are great for first reader books.  There is a good amount of word repetition between stories so they build on each other.  Kids love that they can read them on their own!
They are a great resource to have and come in more than one level

Just found your blog. Thanks for the great ideas. I wanted to second your recommendation of the Bob Books. I'm a huge fan! Reese feels so satisfied after finishing a book because he read the whole thing! We should swap ideas sometime. I have tons of fun reading, phonics, math, etc. games that I've made that your kids would probably enjoy.
