So Alden is in Grade one right?
And he had his first library day at school.
And he picks out this book.
Of all the books in the library he picks out this.
And he wants me to read it to him as a bedtime story.
And every page he is fascinated with the things on it.
X-Rays and cameras.
He soaks it all up, as I stumble across the words.
For a while he was having us read this encyclopedia book (i think called How things work) that my mom bought him.
It is interesting to me that a kid who is turning seven likes to sit and hear this kind of stuff. That he'd rather sit and listen to how things work and learn about how things work. Random things like washing machines, car engines, the internet, telephones and sound waves.
Yet this is the same kid who, while I was trying to get him to read me a phonics Dora book to me tonight says "so am I reading this or you, cause I don't want to?"
I think he is going to be fascinated with so many things. As soon as he learns to read. He is getting there. Each day we are working and so is his grade one teacher. And soon he will be reading.
And shortly after that, who knows.... maybe he will be reading about Electromagnetic waves all on his own.
