Learning to read – Maebh’s turn.

It seems like only yesterday I was a proud mom posting about how my son, Soren learned to read in Reception at GVS.

It’s now Maebh’s turn in Jr. Infants…,

Back in Gresham, Soren learned using Read, Write, Inc method and here Maebh is doing Jolly Phonics.  While they differ in some way, essentially they learn the sounds of he letters and then learn to blend them.   I’m not sure what they do in the states, as our kids have never attended primary school there but I think it’s probably the same way.  Soren did a year of Nursery school in Beverly (two days a week for three hours each day) so it was more like playtime vs. school.
