A Star At School

My heart bursts with pride whenever I see Keisha come home from school with a star on her hand. Today's star was because she did a good job at reading out loud at school. Since last year at the age of 4, Keisha already knew how to read. Of course, at first she didn't get to read out loud, but as the months at school went by, she began to read faster and faster.

I recall how she would syllabicate until she got the word right. I also recall how she kept asking us how to read a certain word and how it was supposed to sound. I'm glad that now, she's got the hang of it. Of course, there are some words that she still needs some work on, but as her vocabulary expands, I'm sure she'll get the hang of it.
