I had another post in mind I was going to do today, but I just came back from my daughter's school as I had to drop her off and ask the teacher a question, well, it turns out that my question lead to me learning that my daughter is 3rd to last in a classroom of 25 kids in reading!!!! I'm shocked and I can't believe it. But thinking back, maybe I can. So, something MUST change in this household!!! There will be a lot more reading going on.
Victoria was always a kid that claimed she didn't like reading, but towards the end of last year, she started enjoying it and even changed her tune, which I was ever so grateful and happy for. In school they provided tutoring, and she really enjoyed that, so I thought things were changing and she was improving. I saw an improvement.... Now it turns out that it must have been in my head because she is way below where she should be and I am going a bit crazy trying to figure out ways to make her read more without turning her off of books completely!!!
I guess I don't understand it because I've always liked reading, from the moment I could put letters together, I was always reading everything that popped in front of me, I loved the fact that I could make sense of the world around me. I do realize I have not been doing as much reading now as I did before, especially in front of Victoria.
So, here is another New Year's goal. 2015 will be the year of reading in my household!!! Oh yes!
