Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Dan Ran

My five year old read her second book today and I think mommy is more excited then she is. Every child is different and I am learning this very quickly. When we first started with our phonics program this year both of us seemed to be struggling. I was worried that she might be one that would be hard to teach. I have continued working with her and giving her lots and lots of PRAISE. She is a child that thrives on praise, but I am pretty sure most children are that way. So today she read her second book to me and I am so proud of her. I cover the pictures when they are this age so they don't look at the pictures and get confused.
Here is the book she read.
Dan at bat.
Dan ran.
Pat at bat.
Pat ran. Dan ran.
Pat! Dan!
Pretty basic but she's got it. Thanks Hooked on Phonics. It has worked for us.

susan, Dad and I just read Dan Ran, how sweet was what I said when we got to the end of the post. And Nana knew that when I saw Dan Ran it was about Brecken. Love mom
