It happened! All of a sudden. Just this week. Just like I was sure it would. I7 is reading all on his own "big" books! He's been reading Magic Treehouse books and Easy Reader Classic books all.week.long. Everywhere he goes he has a book with a bookmark and his reading timer. To catch all those minutes
The new Reading Made Easy workbook exercises are working out really well for I7. They have been wonderful for that little bit of extra reading and writing practice.
Congratulations I7!! Welcome to the world of independent reading!
