So Jude's started reading in the past month or so, and it's freaking me out a little bit. Are any of your LOs reading...I'm asking mostly because I'm wondering if this is really as abnormal as Dr. Google is telling me it is.
He was just reading 2-letter words that I helped him sound out - like "up" or "of." But just with me halfheartedly working with him to teach him to sound out longer words, he's seriously reading in full sentences and is reading some 5-letter words. The goggling I'm doing on it really does have me a little concerned about if we should put him in a different school or if I have to worry about him being really far behind socially and emotionally.
One website I read even said to discourage an early reader, or else they'll get too far ahead of their classmates, get bored, and cause trouble. I don't know...I'm really uncomfortable with discouraging him from reading if he enjoys it. I feel like he needs to be challenged, regardless of how that means he acts in the classroom, you know?
Just wondering what your guys' thoughts are and hoping I'm letting Google freak me out more than I should.
