He insisted I take this picture today after he marked off the very last lesson.
Then he wanted to show off his reading skills for Daddy. This is the next-to-last lesson in the book. The only words that really tripped him up were 'extraterrestrial' and the 'cality' part of 'impracticality.' I couldn't have read this when I was 6!!!
Him, reading this to his Daddy...
He definitely sounds precocious! I'm so proud of him. Of course, now I owe him a Mommy Day. His work has also already paid off. At his parent-teacher conference at school today, his teacher surprised me by telling me that she IS going to let him go to first-grade reading for the rest of the year after all. She said he's definitely reading at the same level as that class (just think... these kids are getting ready for second grade, and he's reading at their level!) and his comprehension is somewhere between third and fourth grade!
Totally having a bragging Mommy moment, but at the same time, I'm bragging on his hard work. It has definitely been its own reward.
