I've just barely started beginning reading with Eli. I've introduced a couple word families to him, and already I can tell he's going to do a great job as he learns to blend together more and more words. We've also done a couple easy, repetitive type books. It's so fun listening to him read a whole "book" by himself!
Note: Now after the fact, I realize when Eli said "boat" instead of "sail boat" I could have told him to re-look at the first letter of the word and figure it out from there, but while taking the video, I wasn't thinking that fast!
