Reading and Learning.


The other week I wrote about how the boys have made progress at school & how I went to parents evening. Well today I wanted to talk about Ellie and how well she's been progressing in year one.

Ellie's reading has come a long SO well! She can read all of her sight words now and all of her reading book on her own.

Ellie reading her reading book. (She looks so tired in this pic!)

This time last year, she could only regonise letters and sound out two letter words "it" "is" etc. Now she can read words like "children" and "happen". I am so pleased with her! We have been doing a lot of extra reading at home, it helps when she has books that she can (mostly) read herself! When she can read books herself, it encourages her to read more. She's a right little book worm, hehe.

Going through pages of sight words.
I'm not sure when her parents evening is but I know that she has made a lot of progress. She can add and subtract numbers and she can pick out the highest and lowest numbers out of a group. I'm really proud of how well she's learning.

I do think we need to work on her not skipping letters when sounding out words though, I think sometimes she rushes, I'm sure we can work on that though!

I am so proud of my little's, they're learning and growing up so fast!
