Claire has finally moved through her first theme of books in the first step of the program. She has read through all 5 books of the princess theme. I am so proud of her! To see the accomplishment in her face and the desire she has to continue reading, and re-read the books is just so wonderful!
Each time we move onto a new book, I see the confidence grow in her reading as well. There is less hesitation from her, and she seems to move rather easily through the books. There is the odd page that she may stumble on, but she is just learning, so we can't expect perfection here, but for the most part, it seems to be fairly smooth.
I just realized something new, or possibly just overlooked on my part, today. On the Stepping Stones Together website, in your personal account, all of the books are listed that are available to choose in the first stage of the program. Well, for the life of me I could not figure out how we would move to the list of books in the second stage, once we had completed the first.
As I was going back to the list to print out more books for Claire, I realized that on the right hand for each book, is a button that says "NOT COMPLETED". Lo and behold, when you click the button it changes to a big green check mark, showing that you have completed that book, along with the date. So, due to my lack of knowledge (or just not remembering to go back and do it!), all of the first five books have today as their finish date, which of course, is not the case. However, I guess that would be a minor detail!
Tomorrow we start into the "Fairy" theme books, and Claire couldn't be more excited! I myself, am very excited as well, but less because of it being fairies, and more of it to see how she continues to progress!
Please check back for further updates!
