He's coming to the end of stage 3 and he finds them a bit dull. Made worse by the teacher's technique of going over the book in school, then reading it at home, then rereading it but looking for double letters, then rereading looking for three letter words etc ad nauseum. We're getting 2 to 3 books a week max.

DS wants to read, loves reading signs, packets etc, and enjoys having chapter books read to him at night. But he gets really distracted by the second or third read and is guessing or substituting words because he knows the story. I'm thinking if I get some different books for home he night feel a bit more inspired?

It was "not bad" I was disagreeing with Cecily grin

Just wanted to say thank you to Bran for introducing me to the Batman books. DS is delighted and they're seemingly at a very similar level to the ORT stuff he's doing now. He's just read himself a bedtime story! smile
