Last week, Justin was given his piece for their reading recital which will happen in February. The parents are supposed to train their children to read at home until they can master their piece. Justin’s reading piece is a nursery rhyme entitled “If All the Seas Were One Sea.”
If all the seas were one sea,
What a great sea that would be!
If all the trees were one tree,
What a great tree that would be!
If all the axes were one axe,
What a great axe that would be!
If all the men were one man,
What a great man he would be!
And if the great man took the great axe,
And cut down the great tree,
And let it fall into the great sea,
What a great splash-splash that would be!
Justin read his first book last September 2010, and it comes as no surprise to us that he can read his assigned material after several practices. He has actually memorized his reading piece already. One of his teachers even told me last week when I dropped him off at his classroom that Justin reads well. Now, that made me a proud momma!
Justin has also been practicing writing the big and small letters of the alphabet and his full name at home. These are his finished products that he showed me the other day.
