I have noticed this summer that A is really picking up on his reading and I can tell he is pretty proud of himself. He has basically improved an entire grade level in his reading in just 4 months. He is home-schooled this year in addition to 8 hours per week of a private tutor.
His tutor shared with me today that while reading a particularly challenging book, he was very impressed with how A broke the word down and sounded out each individual part of the word until he mastered it. This tutor is not familiar with the Easy Read program but he said he had never seen a child work so hard to break down a word. I just wanted you guys to know this and that we are extremely happy with his progress so far!
