My first grader is a READER. As in READS EVERYTHING. As in I nearly outed myself by leaving her Christmas list out on the desk in plain view because I completely forgot that she READS NOW.
Side note: I am a reader, as well. I love to read, always have. Writing and reading are my greatest loves (okay, after other more obvious things like my family, ET CETERA.). But, I still am amazed every day that she can read. That she is six years old and can read words like orchestra. I mean, how the hell does anyone know how to read that? What I’m trying to say is, I love you, teachers.
