I'm not quite sure what happened in my house this afternoon but I'd like to welcome it again and again. My son read a stack of books from school, showing good comprehension and fluency. My daughter kept asking for words to spell; she'd doing simple three letter consonant-vowel-consonant words but she's getting it right. Both kids enjoyed their Brain Quest cards that I picked up on a Costco run (for $6.79, who could resist?).
With all these brainwaves bouncing around, I'm motivated to pick up a more challenging book or do a crossword puzzle.
