Melody read Charlotte’s Web this week. This is what she had to say about the book:
“Charlotte’s Web is the best book I’ve read, but the Bible is more.”
It doesn’t really make sense, but you know what she means.
I bought Charlotte’s Web at one of those Scholastics Books Warehouse sales when I was pregnant with Melody. (Not the best idea to go to the warehouse when you’re pregnant! That place is huge!!!) I can’t remember what I paid, but it was a good deal. Since she finished reading it yesterday, it is still next to her pillow on the bed, and she’ll open it up to read from time to time, different sections that she enjoyed, and start laughing to herself at the funny parts. That girl cracks me up. 🙂
She sounds like such a sweetie. 🙂 Glad you are training her right with the reading of good books. Hope she continues to enjoy them.
Sara, Yup, she’s a major bookworm. 🙂

How did you teach her to read? My 4.5-year-old girl and I went through a book called “teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons”, and that’s how she learn to read. I’d like to know what your method is/was 🙂 thanks!
Kat, No, I didn’t teach her to read. She started reading on her own at age 3, maybe earlier, I can’t remember. She started writing her name a little before she turned 2. Currently, Melody is 5.5 years old, and my guess is that she’s reading at a 3rd grade level…maybe beyond that. I’ve never done any assessments. I have no clue how to teach my 3yo to read…I think she’s learning at average speed. I’ve heard good things about 100 easy lessons. We have both All About Spelling and Explode the Code, and I really like AAS to reinforce the sounds of the letters. We just read a lot in general, so that’s probably a huge part of it. Sorry, it probably doesn’t help you too much. :p Melody just picked it up on her own. One huge reason why we are homeschooling.
