Here is a picture that Piper drew for grandma the other day. I love the big ears.

Reading Two Books

Here are two easier books she can read. Obviously she is using picture clues to read the more challenging words, but she is progressing well. I'd guess she is one level higher than this independently.

Scrambled Sentences

Piper has learned about 50-60 sight words so far in the last month. We add a new one about every day, sometimes more than one. She picks them up faster if it's one that she requests or has been seeing a lot in her books. So far it's just memorization, which is pretty much the same way I started reading. It's funny that she knows her letter sounds, but isn't at the point where blending them together works for her.

Here are a couple videos showing her making dictated sentences for me. Usually we mix them up and she makes them a couple times again. The second video has a long sentence for her and she had a hard time getting started. It was chaotic as well with Stella "helping" and I edited out the first half of the video.
