I'd be excited if I read a big word like "important" when I was 7 too!

He is incredible. You must be so proud

Seger is my most IMPORTANT player....good lord

really though, the bridge between sight reading and phoenetic (much less my spelling) reading at this age is difficult and we can't seem to get on the same page for a reading program.

any suggestions?

WTG Nash!!! Great reading Jan! Hey - I talked to Brady's tutor, and she says she uses Explode the Code with all her kids with special needs and that it's a great program.

Hope things are looking up with the reading program woes - sooo frustrating!!!
