The Honking Goose

something to honk about

my kid said that 2

My almost 8 year old son is learning to read. He is very smart, but he was slow to read. His reading skills have really taken off exponentially just in the last month. For school, he brings home a library book and he has to read it 3 to 4 times and then he’ll take a test on it. So, we read through it together the first time, and then he reads it out loud himself with me next to him to help with the harder words.

He’s been bringing home a series of books called Mr. Putter and Tabby. There was this one word, when he would get to it he would try to guess-remember what it was and he kept saying,

“clitorium”

The word was “geranium”.

    I woke Bob up with my stupid laughter. You have a great site, I will be back for more. On the reading issue how is he with ogres and witches, could he take a look at: http://mudpilewood.wordpress.com and see if he likes any of the stuff on it? An honest review from him would be much appreciated.

    Okay… I can’t help myself… I must define “clitorium”

    Clitorium:

    A place
    A place in which men go to work hard
    A place that might induce sweating
    A place that one needs to visit 2-3x per week for health purposes

    Okay… I’ll stop there!!
