JN has shown some interest in starting to read. He knows his letters both upper and lower case and most of their sounds. Of course we do the major sounds for those letters that can have two sounds like the hard "c" and "g" not their softer siblings. So with the help of my Aunt Vicki, who was a Reading Recovery teacher in Arlington for many years I have made JN his first readers. He loves them and is doing well. I can see making many more of these. Below are some sample pages, all were made in MS Word using the available clip art.
