Where We're AAA-T

Tigger has finished learning all the short vowel sounds and the primary consonant sounds. That means the next step is - ominous organ music here - actual reading. After two days of low key blending attempts ("AAAAA-T", "AAAAA-N", "AAAAA-M") we were supposed to move on to real words today.

We struggled through "cat", we giggled through "fat", we wiggled through "pat". And then Tigger looked up at me and announced, "I do not know how to do this."

We may be here awhile.

My little brother insisted he didn't know how to read until he was about nine. He did, but I guess he didn't think it counted unless he was reading "big" books "in his head" like he some us older kids doing. After he would finish a bob book, we would all try to congratulate him on his successfully reading of a whole book, but he would get upset and yell, "No, I don't know how to read." He eventually came around, I'm sure she will too. :-)
