I had a parent/teacher meeting with Cutler’s teacher this past week and while reviewing his progress she showed me several words that he is now able to read by sounding out the letters. I was a bit skeptical when she told me, but I withheld the skepticism and just smiled at the time. Then on Friday a book was sent home with the instructions for him to read it to me so we put my skepticism to test and low and behold the kid can read. Granted, some of it is him learning words from repetition, but when I found him getting stuck I worked with him on sounding it out and he knew what he was doing. Below is a video of the finished product from tonight. Very proud of our little monkey.
