My 3 year is doing great academically. I want to push her forward, but I don't want to go over too much too fast. Over the past few days, she has been showing interest in reading. She knows how to pronounce all of the letters, but she can't figure out the word. For example, she can pick up a paper and say "huh aa ttt", but she cannot figure out that the word she is trying to read is hat. In order to help her out, I was going to start going over small sight words with her, but my mom thinks that is too much for a 3 year old. What would you all do?
BTW, she knows all of her letters by sight (upper and lower case), her letter sounds, how to write the entire alphabet and how to write her name. It seems to me that reading is the next step, but I don't want to pressure her! Sigh.... the things we worry about as mothers!
