Ash has been very good about rereading after we sat down and discussed why it’s important. When he gets to hard words, he’s showing less frustration than he used to, and he’ll often repeat the hard word a number of times on his own. I’ve also noticed that he’s slowing himself down, so he’s not skipping small words like he used to. His final report card of the year came yesterday, and it shows significant progress in reading.
