Reading Lessons--Using the Scriptures
Part of A5's learn-to-read program includes reading 1 verse each school day from the Book of Mormon. (We got the idea from Milestones Academy.) We're in our 8th week of school, and we're nearly finished with 1 Nephi 2.
We also read the Book of Mormon as a family each night. Until recently the little girls have just repeated what we read when it is their turn. But one night A5 grabbed her large print scriptures and read her verse herself--with lots of prompting and help. "Zarahemla", "heretofore", "ascension," and the like are rather hard words for a 5-year-old to handle alone.
I took this picture to capture this sweet stage of A5's development, but look at little sister H3, too! She's got an awfully good example in her big sister, and I'm sure that it won't be too long before we have yet another scripture reader in the family.
