Max has had a big weekend as well! At school he's been working on sight words. He goes around looking for words he knows. I came across Bob Books, and sent the link to my mom for Christmas ideas. I also saw a box of sight words in our latest Scholastic book order at school, so I bought it. We opened it yesterday. The books are numbered 1-10 and you read them in order. Each book has 3 sight words that appear throughout the story. We went over those, the names of the characters (which appear in all the stories as well) and before we knew it, MAX WAS READING. He read all 10 books over and over again. There are words he gets stuck on, and we work on sounding them out. The first time he read through a book, I cried. I was so proud of him. I took a video and sent it to his teacher. Now, all he wants to do is read!!!
I only took video of Max's accomplishment, not Emma's. I don't think the world needs to see that, though we are super excited for Emma's milestone. No more having to buy pull-ups!! Happy dance!! I'm having trouble uploading Max's full video, but you can see 15 seconds of it here.
I snapchatted (is that the word?) this yesterday. One of my students gave me this mug, and behind it on the floor is a hot mess of toys. You never would know. I'm pretty lame on snapchat, but if you are so curious as to what I post, you can find me at jenwink08. I tend to forget to post during the week, and then post on the weekends. Lame. I know.
