My sister has a PhD in educational psychology, so now I know fancy phrases like emerging literacy that I would never know otherwise.
I'm so proud of my daughter's latest emerging literacy step. She is "reading" her favorite books. Well she has been "reading" since she was a baby. But now she will retell the story to me in her own words, trying to use the phrases of the author. This morning she "read" me The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Tonight she read Monkey and Me along side me.
