The Twerp’s pre-k class will have a reading recital at school. She came home last week with a letter from school about the reading recital with the paragraph that she is supposed to read attached to it. Oh no! Via doesn’t really know how to read yet. She only knows the sounds to the letters but is not yet applying it so she can read. She does recognize a few words like her name, “free” for downloading ipad apps, and her classmates names.
The reading material is from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Her part is:
Every who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot.
But the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville did not!
The Grinch hated Christmas. The whole Christmas season!
Now please don’t ask why. No one quite know the reason.
It could be that his head wasn’t screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that is shoes were too tight.
But the most likely reason of all is that
His heart may be two sizes too small.
What to do? I can’t have her standing in front with a blank look because she can’t read it! I had her memorize it. She’s good in memorizing. Within 2 days she’s already memorized her part. It needs a little polish so it doesn’t look like she memorized it though. I hope it works!
