My Boy Can Read!

Check this out!

And you gotta give my little guy props for being able to read with a crazy little sister beside him.  What exactly is she doing?

Now the big challenge will be to keep this interest in reading going through the summer holidays and into grade one. 

Do you have any suggestions?  So far we have a reading journal that he likes to fill out and place a sticker on each time he reads a book.  I think the reward when he's filled the whole thing out might be to go to the book store and get a new beginner book of his own to read.  Or maybe a trip to the library.  He loves getting new books - especially ones that he can read himself! :D

Check out homeschool curriculum for good books for kids to read. Sonlight.com, Five in a Row, Veritas Press, to name a few. I don't know how many of them are good for beginning readers to read but even having books read to him will help him want to read more.

My local library always had a summer reading program where the kids kept track of how many books they read each week. There was a poster in the library where they tracked their progress, and usually some activity/problem to solve each week in the library. I don't know if the libraries are still running this program--I think it started just after school finished. My kids loved it during their early school years.
