Keeping Reading Active

J-jo is improving tremendously in his reading.  He’s so excited that he can read, but it takes tremendous effort on his part so sometimes he isn’t keen to practice.  I try to find innovative ways to entice him and on this particular day, I had misplaced the All About Reading game we were supposed to play.  (I ripped out multiple pages, took them upstairs to go laminate them and inadvertently misplaced them!)   I rewrote what I could see of the fluency word list from the teacher’s manual onto a white board and J-jo would read, run to get blocks, then return to me to make a tower with the blocks.  It was nothing major, but he thought he was playing and had tremendous fun.
