Silas can *read*!
Consonant-Vowel-Consonant words, anyway. We were reading his bedtime story the other night, and every time I got to a CVC word that was phonetically normal, I told him that my eyes were giving me trouble, so could he please help me read that word?
We’ve done this a little bit in the past, but this time, he was consistently sounding the words out! He finally figured out how to mash the sounds together and connect that mashed sound to a word that he knows.
We’ve been waiting for this for a long time.
