Hunter Reading

Hunter is getting better at reading!

He has really taken off with his reading since we moved, I am so proud of his efforts, he has been reading a lot lately and it has been paying off. He has especially been getting better at automatically recognizing many sight words, such as to, it, have, so, etc. He learned these words by simply reading them many times, not by specifically memorizing them.

The best thing about it is that he really loves to read now. He offers to read to me more than he asks me to read to him! And that is saying something for this little boy. I'm so glad that he is finally getting to experience the joy and satisfaction of reading.

"...What is written in the law? how readest thou?" 
Luke 10:26

Hunter is 4 years, 7 months old


  1. You must be so proud. My son is about at that reading level. But not quite so automatic with word recall yet. What book is your son reading? I'd be interested in a little longer books like that for my son.

  2. The book is the "I Can Read It!" book by Sonlight Curriculum. I tried other beginning readers like Bob Books and the Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, but the Sonlight book has by far worked the best for us and we both like it a lot.
