Reading Is FUNdamental

From Sammy Sammerson's teacher:

Did you know that Samuel is an amazing reader? I assessed him on Friday, and he aced the Level I (i) book at 95%. The goal for kindergarten is level B or C. I hadn't heard him read for awhile and was so pleased. I have seen over the years that the others will soon catch up, but being an early reader makes life easier. How did he do that?!

For those of you keeping score at home, that means our firstborn went from not being able to read at the beginning of kindergarten to reading at the top of 1st grade expectations.  He now loves to read, and write, and draw when he used to avoid those activities like the plague.

Sam's not only caught up academically, he's blown past his classmates.  That gives us the space to focus on his anxieties and social interactions, all thanks to socialist education and health care, with a bit of Big Pharma thrown in.

May it continue, it's such a joy to see children reading. Reading books. I hope he reads tons of books every year. All the ones I should have read but haven't yet.
