Speed Trials

Tulip has been struggling with some of her sight words - she can read them but she tends to try and sound them out phonetically rather than just read them.

We hit upon a great game to encourage her to read them quickly. On Monday I give her some new sight words and use the stopwatch to time how long it takes to read and take a photo - this is repeated each day and we compare her time to the previous day. By Friday
she is usually down to 17 seconds to read 20 words : )

As you can see by the smile she loves the competitive aspect of this and really tries hard to get better each day.
