Samuel, our 5 year old, was going through this reading book that we LOVED to learn to read. The adult basically just reads everything in red in the lesson, and the book does all the work. By the end, your kid can read. It's uh-mazing. So we told him that whenever he made it through the entire book that we'd have a reading party for him. Well, he was reading so well in school that we quit the book because he already exceeded it. The book gave him an excellent foundation with which to really accelerate his learning at school.
So we had his reading party today! We invited three of his buddies from his class over after school for some "Reading Rainbow Cake" to celebrate Samuel learning to read. (Mimi came over to celebrate with us, too.) :) By the way, I didn't even try to explain "Reading Rainbow" to the kids because it would have made me feel too old.
So even though you've seen these a bazillion times, here's mine. I thought it needed more icing in between the layers, but I'm an icing addict.
Did you celebrate an academic milestone in your family? I wanna know!!!
