By Jove She's Got It!!
My baby can write sentences now. She is beginning to "get it", you know, this is the saddest and happiest point in their educational lives for me. I am an avid reader, I have always read to my kids. I always buy books for Birthday, Christmas and on any other day that I feel like buying books for them.
I reckon it pays off...in the end..or is that the beginning? Well, you know, I did cry when Tomas said to me "Mum, I KNOW how to read, you don't need to read the book to me now". Boohooooo, blubbering mess was I!
Nicholas is a self taught reader. He reads a novel every night. Thanks to Karisma for the Bionicles set of books, as he has re-read them to death! He also reads Horrible Histories, Aussie Chomps, Footrot Flats and MAD magazines. I have just purchased some good books off of ebay for him.. one is a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book..does anyone remember them? I do, and I loved them! The other book is an R.L Steine "Goosebumps" book. I can't wait to see his face.
Sarah is sitting next to me rightr now reading out some poems. She actually sings them as opposed to reading them. I love it. Her little voice is kind of breaking as she quivers her tones.. I think she could even yodel if she had lessons :)
So there you have it, my four little readers. Mia's teacher is just over the Moon today, we did a "Hi FIVE" motion at the end of school, and we danced around saying "She got it! By Jove she got it!"
