Thank you for sharing! She was so proud the other day when she brought her book home to practice reading. She read it to me, her dad, and her brother many times! We’ve also noticed her excitement about sounding out words, so we have purchased some flashcards with basic sight words to practice at home. She reminds me every night that she wants to read them to me. Thank you for all that you do to encourage Cara! 🙂 (March 2011)
