A big day today

Today was a special day. Marcus brought home his first reading book from school.

trouble 

The children have been (and still are) learning all their sounds and Marcus has become very adept at sounding out shorter words (excepting, of course, all the many, many words in English that break the rules). Up until today he’s come home with sound sheets and word lists, so getting a real book was very exciting. It certainly was for Mummy anyway, and Marcus did seem very happy that he could read it, although I’m pretty sure he used the pictures to figure out words like kitchen and rubbish.

All the same, it was a proud mother and a proud son that read it through this afternoon.

What a great post.
And my students would be so happy to hear you say that it is difficult to spell English. That is certainly what many Danish students feel :D
