Grace has become more confident and willing to tackle a wider range of reading material as she now believes that ‘she can’ where as before she thought she ‘definitely couldn’t’ which would prevent her from even starting. The battles seem to be over for now.

Maybel is doing brillantly and as I said in a previous message she has come up into Year 1 reading group. She also is willing to try and read everything in sight. Her teacher mentioned that her blending of words which I think is the same as decoding is very good and above her age.

I think I was at the end of my tether with Grace’s reluctance to read and homework time was always stressful. I am looking forward to the rest of the course and the positive reinforcements of the prizes has really worked.
