I'm sitting her trying to come up with something to blog about, listening to Daredevil do Lexia (a very, very good reading program). After him struggling and struggling with reading and letter sounds, I have been hearing the most wonderful sounds out of him.
Grrrrr. Pppppuuuuh, Puuuhhh, thhhhh, shhhhh. Nnnnnnnn.
He's sounding things out!
It's taken months to complete the section of Lexia he is on. Some weeks we are lucky if he would creep up a bar on the chart. He does Lexia for 30 min a day, M-F. Plus we read books, do I See Sam books, Tumblebooks, and it seemed like something just wasn't clicking.
But now, it sure looks like something is. I couldn't be prouder. I have a deal with him that if he finishes the last two bars of the level, we are going to get ice cream. It's a huge step for him!
