Hop on Pop…our first book

Posted on June 1, 2010. Filed under: Capture the moment | Tags: , , , |

Big night in our household. Huge. Huge!

We went to the library today to sign up for the summer reading adventure. While there we talked to the librarian on her suggestions for good book for beginning readers. We ended up with about 10 new books. Both of us were super excited as there was a whole series of sound books that tie so wonderfully to the Montessori sound box Maddie had been working on at school.

We got our books and our instructions for the summer challenge and headed home. Maddie couldn’t wait to read her first book so we sat on the couch with Dr. Seuss’ Hop on Pop. It was about 2 pages in when Maddie started to catch on the rhymes and sounded out the word cat. She recognizes on, the, a, and and so she was able to start putting sentences together.

What a moment..I must admit I was so excited and almost in tears. Experiencing her sounding the words out, putting the words together, and realizing she had read 4 words together. She was just as giddy and more and more determined to read page after page. She even got upset when I said a word before sounding it out for her to figure out. That’s my girl.

I have a feeling we might have a little reader soon and the summer reading challenge just got a lot more exciting.

…and that’s how a reader is born! Makes you realize all those snuggly nights of reading have given Maddie the foundation she needs to see the wonder of it all! xoxo
