Reading

Ella – Today at school, I read ‘sat’ all by myself!
Me – Wow!
Ella – I read s a t. Sat!
Me – I’m so proud! You can read!
Ella – I can only read ‘sat’.
Me – I’m sure you can read other words too. See if you can read this.
Ella – p a t. p a t. p a t. Sat? No. p a t. p a t. Mat? No. p a t. p a t. Pat!
Me – Well done! See, you can read.
Ella – I can only read some words.
Me – But that’s a great start. Let’s try a harder one. What does this say?
Ella – t a p. t a p. t a p. Pat? No. t a p. t a p. t a p. Mat? No. t ap. t a p. t a p. Cucumber!

I expect this is going to turn into a running joke from now on, where she’s going to yell ‘cucumber’ whenever she can’t work something out..
