Marcus is reading extremely well now. He's really enjoying it, and bringing home a new reading book from school each day. Although he's doing tremendously well, we have to reassure him sometimes, as Michael is reading the very same books. Michael is starting to get the idea of looking at letters and guessing sounds, but his reading is still based on asking us "what's this word?" and then just never forgetting it. Ever. He read a book aloud to us the other night, about Noah's Ark. He just read it, confidently and fluently.
Elf has been reassuring Marcus that he is still the king of maths. Michael hasn't got hold of maths yet.
We are so lucky to have boys that are so bright and just eat up books, sums and wordlists. I hope they will always find learning coming this easily to them.
