Sawyer read to his grandmother last weekend in Boston.
This was some of his homework while we were traveling.
When Mom heard him read, she wrote on his book log:
"Sawyer needs harder books to read." Signed, Sawyer's Grandmother
I have been fighting this battle all year.
She won. Mrs. Flynn went looking for harder books.
When I signed Sawyer out of school, a second grade teacher stopped to talk.
She told me Sawyer's teacher visited her room for chapter books.
For Sawyer to read.
She wanted to know what my secret was.
Why is Sawyer so adept at reading?
Did I do a special reading program with him?
When did I begin his training?
There was no training, no special program, no secrets.
Just reading library books and scriptures.
Maybe one secret.
In my house there is no television, no cable, no computer games, and no video games.
What else is there to do but read?
Do you think that helped?
He really likes these books!
