Solo Reading

This week Wesley has started spending a fair amount of time reading aloud to himself. He goes over to his shelf, chooses a book, then plop himself down and start narrating the pages.

Because he so thoroughly knows his books (including the truck books from the library), he reads highlights from the page. Overhearing him may sound something like this...

"Come! Bulldozers! Push! Dirt! Road. New-New."

That of course, is the page talking about how bulldozers help make new roads by pushing dirt out of the way. Then he turns to the next page and continues his reading.

It is a very sweet activity to watch. I love watching the evolution of his relationship to reading and books. He has previously enjoyed flipping through his books on his own, but he hadn't spent much time reading longer books aloud to himself.
