My how smart you are! You have started reading. For you Kindergarten class, you have sight words to learn, so you know about 22 of the 31 sights words. But you are also starting to sound out words really well. We have some simple books that you are able to read with only small help from Mom and Dad. You get frustrated when I tell you to sound things out instead of just telling you the word you get stuck on. I get a little frustrated when you sound out a word perfectly and then look at the picture and make a random guess. We are working on it, and I'm scared to push you too much because I soooo want you to love reading like I did as a kid and still do.
