For the last 9 months, Shaeler has been visiting Great Grandma Henrie to learn her sounds and learn how to read. Just recently she has really clicked with her reading and has finally learned how to read her 4th book, which is the first book that they actually have to read from. I taped her today so my mom and dad could see.
I am so thankful that for Grandma Henrie and the time and effort she puts into teaching Shaeler. She has been an angel for me in teaching Shaeler the importance of an education and being confident in learning new things.
It is funny, Shaeler sits at the same table and in the same chair that we (my sister and cousins) sat in when Grandma Henrie taught us all to read and write. The only thing missing is the Tab on the table. And when Shaeler is tired and doesn't want to read anymore, she can get down and play, gets a cookie and a $1. I believe my only other option other than reading was going outside and picking up rotten apricots. :(
