Sight Words

When G was 3 he could read these words:
Water
Cow
Mom
Dad
Baby
Ball
G (his full name)
Bus
School
Office
Red
Blue
Yellow
Green
Car
Truck
Train
Boat
Big
Little
Up
Down
Go
Stop
Yes
No
Sun
Moon
Star

Now that he is 4 he is reading so many words it is a little strange sometimes, but awesome.
He surprises me all the time with the words he can read. Some of it is our routines I'm sure. I don't know if he would be able to know "sugar" if it weren't on our cookie recipe. But he'll pick out words he knows in a page of letters. Like if we're singing a hymn, he'll pick out the word "Jesus" in the title or text.

Hurray for reading!

I can Read!

The other day we were at a park and G read a sign "No Dogs, No Bikes."
We had started to spell it out for him since that is our usual pattern "N O, means No..."
But G just busted out, signing and saying the full sentence.

Totally awesome.
