My daughter really, really, really wants to learn to read. She doesn't care that she's just four. She wants to read and she wants me to teach her. So we've been working on phonics. You might say we're getting hooked on them.
Today she really got it. I asked her out of nowhere if she could remember what letters get together to make the "chuh" sound. She got them in the wrong order at first but came up with a bunch of word with the "c-h" sound in them. Some were even words we hadn't talked about before.
Then about three hours later we were watching Underdog and she asked how to spell "charge." I asked if she remembered what made the "chuh" sound and she knew right away.
