Joshin Posted September 8, 2012 Share Posted September 8, 2012 I posted a couple of weeks ago about our reading woes with my math/science-minded kid. Well, in the last week he has made leaps and bounds, although he is still isn't at grade level. We were looking at a book just for fun that is well above his reading level and he was trying to decipher a few words as he recognized them. We had already encountered the word 'could' a few pages back. He saw the word 'would' and read it successfully on his own. I told him good job and he said excitedly, "Mom, it's just like math! The "w" is a constant and the "ould" is a variable! You have to teach me all the variables then I can read just as good as everyone else!" He then decided to spend the morning going through a deck of sight word cards over and over again, determined to "learn all the variables." Sometimes I love how this kid thinks!
