For #1 Son.
Well, not exactly. But for the princely sum of $310 I have just enrolled him for five weeks in a summer reading skills class. It included the materials and honestly I think it’s worth the money. It seems geared towards children of his age appropriately: there’s going to be moving and fun with reading skills.
He needs this. He can read, but he doesn’t like reading. Loves books but doesn’t love reading.
Those of you who know me in real life know that I am a complete and total bookworm. The hus-creature not so much. He likes Terry Pratchett, he likes graphic novels but reading isn’t something he really does the recreation. I would therefore very much like my son to follow in my footsteps but we’ve been struggling with the practicalities and mechanics of reading.
This seems like a good balance and will help me to help him solidify the principles. I’ll check back in after the end of July and let you know how it all went.
We only received this leaflet yesterday, and one of the two age-appropriate sessions was already fully booked out!
I will sit in with him, so TT will get valuable daddy-daughter bonding time.
