We carefully sit.
We sound out the words
Is this word ‘big, pig or dig’…how absurd.
How can a five year old know all the sounds?
Reading in Kindergarten? Pressure abounds!
“Pah…pah…pah…pig,”she eventually says.
I reply, “That’s a b!”
She shakes her blonde head.
“Try once again,” I calmly inspire.
“Dah…dah…dig!” She looks happy.
But I burst her sweet bubble.
I prompt, “Bah…bah…bah…B!”
But she simply looks troubled.
“Words can be puzzling,” I assure her once more.
“Let’s try this page again.”
She stares at the floor.
“The big pig likes to dig,” I say pointing at words.
Reading in Kindergarten?
This is absurd.
