Mercedes has been having so much fun reading this summer! She is getting faster and more confident the more she practices. We have been reading at least 3 or 4 of these kindergarten level readers a day. Yesterday she was on a role and we ended up reading 14 throughout the day! I love her enthusiasm for reading. We have a collection of Bob Books, Hooked on Phonics books and books we put together last year from her My Father's World Curriculum. She has read nearly all of them at this point and has her favorites. I try to get her to pick out one or two that she feels really comfortable reading and one or two that are still challenging to read every day. We are reading these along with doing 1-2 pages out of her phonics book every day.
