Y is for Yarn

Oh happy day - after months of struggle, Caroline had her a-ha moment. Suddenly she's reading - this is such an exciting thing to watch. When you break it down into all it's basic elements, it amazes me that anyone learns how to read at all. I have no memories of learning how to read, other than that I was painfully aware of being in the slow reader's group in the first grade. While all the quick little readers were in the bunny group, I was relegated to the snake group - and believe me I couldn't have felt lower than a snake. I swear what are some teachers thinking?

This graphic is from the Jan Brett web site - I love her illustrations. She has tons of cute activities posted on her site. Check it out
