Liam can read.
Today he brought some Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems into school to share with his class. While we were waiting in the drop off line, he pulled out I Broke My Trunk! and began to read it to me.
It seems as thought things are suddenly clicking with him and he's figured out this whole reading thing. I could tell it was coming. I've caught him sounding out the words on signs as we drive around. At night, he reads with us most of the time instead of us reading to him. But it didn't seem like it was a fully realized ability yet and much of what he read seemed memorized, at least to me.
When he pulled out that book and started reading I thought it was memorization again. But it wasn't. He was clearly taking the time to figure out the words as he went along. I heard him sound out the ones he didn't know. He looked to the pictures for clues when he got stumped. When I came home, I asked Scot if they had read that one at bedtime recently. They haven't.
We have a fully fledged reader in the house now. So when can we start with the Harry Potter?
