Real Reading & Starbucks Giveaway

Remember this little guy?

I think I can safely shout from the mountain tops that

“Jackson can read!”



IMG_9212

These are the books he has been bringing home from Kinder.

I was dazzled when he learned his first 80 sight words.

When he read his first sentence and understood it, I could have cried.

“I can run.” he read, and then he showed me running in place.

Fast forward a few months and he read this to me tonight

  1. This is silly for both of us-we are constantly reply texting the wrong person. One of these times were going to get in trouble and send something amiss to the hubs ;)

    Congrats on your big reader! It really is the best feeling to see those lightbulbs going off. Woo-hoooo!

  2. That is the A-Beka Reading Program! I used that program when I taught Kinder at a private school - the curriculum is amazing and completely logical. I wish the public schools would adopt their reading and writing program. The math and science programs are completely outdated and are not ideal.

    I had my son in my class one year.

    I love your stuff!!

  8. Woohoo for your son! :) I always order a Hazelnut Latte when I'm at Starbucks.

  9. The zebra sounds wonderful ... I usually get the venti cinnamon dolce. HUGE news for your son; it opened up a whole new world when my little girl learned to read! Course she's 19 now so it's been awhile since I've experienced that JOY so I'm happy to feel it vicariously through you!!! Happiness all around.

  11. I deleted my other comment, as I forgot to say what I order at Starbucks. I actually don't get the fancy drinks, because I'm trying to lose my "sympathetic baby bump". :) As such, I order a tall brewed coffee, the darker the better. Congratulations on Jackson's reading, and also for your 400+ followers. Actually, counting me you are now at 412. I'm dropping by from your hubby's blog. We daddy bloggers must stick together. Actually my wife blogs, too. She's at MilkandCuddles.com. Have a super weekend!

  12. Loving your proud Momma moment! Congratulations Jackson!

    I ALWAYS order a skinny vanilla latte. I switch it up sometimes, but always go back to this simple drink. Although a Zebra does sound quite delicious...might have to try it =)

  19. I LOVE Starbucks! What I order depends on the season! In the summer I like Iced Carmel Macchiato. In the fall it's Pumpkin Spice Latte. Winter is Peppermint Mocha. Right now I'm drinking Skinny Carmel Macchiato. All hot drinks need to be extra hot! I'm thinking I need to try the zebra! I'm in a Starbucks club with 2 other teachers at school. We take turns buying every Friday! I hope I win! LOL!
