Okay, well practically reading. Pre-reading all over the place. Sounding out early single syllable words! It’s pre- quasi- just about- reading madness over here!
On the calendar in the kitchen, we’re marking daily milestones in two different colors: in one color, words the big sister reads; in another, words the little brother utters. We’re in that rare moment when the two could be misconstrued (e.g., recently read word by girlchild: “cop,” favorite word of boychild: “cup!”).
Soon as she has the whole reading business under her belt, we’ll lose her for sure.
