Reading

James is now an independent reader. He is at about a 3rd grade reading level. He loves picture books mostly, however we have buddy read a few chapter books. We no longer do phonics instruction as it seems to not be necessary.  In time we will cover any phonics gaps by using a phonics based spelling program.

I read to James at least an hour a day. 30 minutes before nap time and 30 minutes before bed time.
And whenever he feels like it. James reads alone at least an hour a day also. Especially at night before bed. Daddy also is involved in reading too.

I added links above to some of James’ favourite books.
