Hugo’s reading is going really well. The biggest change I have noticed recently is that he has a bigger repertoire of possible pronunciations for a given diagraph / trigraph, so that when he sounds out a difficult word which doesn’t make sense the way he has pronounced it, he can go back and find a different pronunciation until it sounds like a word that makes sense!

His reading of questions in workbooks is also improving so that he can actually understand what is being asked of him in an exercise!

Now he will also read out something on a newspaper or a sign out and about and then look at us and say “Did I just read that? I didn’t even think about it. Wow! is that what it’s like when you read? No wonder you find it so easy!”
