A Love of Reading 263:365

When my girls are ready to learn to read, we use this wonderful old book called "How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons". It's a really fun method that converts more English words into words that can be sounded out. Each lesson has a short story at the end with a drawing depicting that lesson's story. You keep the picture covered while you read the story the first time. We make a big deal out of *finally* getting to uncover the (usually silly) picture to see if we correctly guessed what it will show. This exercise is a natural way to teach reading for comprehension without relying on pictures. For Alba's turn with this book, we've been keeping the story picture covered with a lovely postcard from M-C's Etsy shop. Such a fun way of keeping our friend M-C close to our hearts every day. :)
