Weekend Reading: January 22, 2011

learning to read
teaching my 4.5 yo to read

I absolutely love teaching my girls to read. Although it’s not always easy, those lightbulb moments make it all worth it! This week, my 4.5-year-old read her first word, and it was so exciting for all of us. We use the Explode the Code series, and she’s been working hard to get through the last of her pre-reader books so that she could finally learn to read!

Below are some of my favorite posts from the week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
