As parents, it can be frustrating when your school-age kid is not yet reading at the expected grade level. At the same time, it is extremely rewarding to witness him or her started reading independently. Having gone through the process in the last few years, I am now my child's reading buddy where we each read a book or something of our choices in one same setting each day. I hope you will find this reading log, which I will update regularly, informative and encouraging. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. Happy reading from SeahorseWorkshop.com.

As parents, it can be frustrating when your school-age kid is not yet reading at the expected grade level. At the same time, it is extremely rewarding to witness him or her started reading independently. Having gone through the process in the last few years, I am now my child's reading buddy where we each read a book or something of our choices in one same setting each day. I hope you will find this reading log, which I will update regularly, informative and encouraging. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. Happy reading from SeahorseWorkshop.com.

Reading Log of a 3rd Grade School-Kid (Christmas & January): As parents, it can be frustrating when your school-age kid is not yet reading at the expected grade level. At the same time, it is extremely rewarding to witness him or her started reading independently. Having gone through the process in the last few years, I am now my child's reading buddy where we each read a book or something of our choices in one same setting each day. I hope you will find this reading log, which I will update regularly, informative and encouraging. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. Happy reading from SeahorseWorkshop.com.
