August continues to astound me with the words he can read. He'll read a sentence or a title or something random that is huge....and then get out a chapter book and stumble. I'm like "Dude that's a huge word, how did you know what it was?" A "What else could it be?" Me, "That's EXACTLY what reading is all about, you gotta figure out what makes sense!" Which brings me to the chapter books and their scripted, formula writing with the word choices limited. What is written in the dialogue isn't always authentic so it's not always what should be there..... Twaddle free literature. Bring on Roald Dahl and his scarey knids. That man was twisted......anyone else JUST figure out what knid is spelled backwards???
