Reading With Rubes.

Bedtime reading with the kids the other night led to the following conversation.

Rubes: "Mom, Can I pick out a book?"

Me: "Sure."

She chose an easy reader stage 1 book. Perfect really since they're learning sight words in school. I quickly realize that Rubes is "reading" words before I point to them. Then she reads a whole sentence.

I say: "Rubes, you're reading!"

Rubes, grinning from ear to ear: "I know, my teacher didn't teach me."

Me: "Oh, really?"

Rubes: " I learned myself."

Me: "I see."

Rubes, very serious: "My brain is on."

I laughed, hugged her and told her how proud I was that she was using it. I do recall asking her to use her brain...still makes me smile.

How sweet! It's so neat that you're recording these conversations :) I wish I had done this.
