Smart Kids

I remember learning my letters in kindergarten. I do not recall learning to read, but I am pretty sure I could not have read this in first grade...


This is a page from Kayla's library book that she brought home tonight. At 33 I barely know some of those words! It won't be too long and she will pass me up completely.

Wow that is complex for first grade!

You are right --- 1st graders in the 80's didn't read at this level. She read a similar book to me the last time we were there and I couldn't believe the reading skill.

What a smart girl! Yeah, these kids are pushed to read at a higher level than I remember doing. But, it doesn't seem to be much of a challenge for them. Unbelievable!

That looks so hard! What do all those words even mean???
