Today while doing Kylie's Reading Made Easy book, I noticed that the light bulb finally turned on! She officially "gets" blends. They had been giving her a hard time and after a few fits and starts, we are rolling now with RME. I am so thankful to have a reading program that when we go through the lesson, Kylie is genuinely happy!
That wasn't the case a few months ago. We would start and she would just dive into the couch crying. I would encourage her to press on but it just didn't work. I think taking a good 6 months off worked well! I know there will still be challenges but it seemed to pay off.
