Audrey read her first new story in normal orthography. The last couple were repeats of stories we'd read previously with Siegfried's fancy letters. It went surprisingly well, though a bit of a struggle at times.
The hardest part of this whole learning to read thing for me is how she can read a word perfectly the first time she sees it and then struggle with it in the next line. I guess it's just part of the process. But literally today there was a sentence with "far, far" and the second "far" was really challenging, while the first didn't give her a second's hesitation. Crazy.
I might be a believer in un-schooling. Since about lesson 20 I've abandoned pushing Audrey on this thing in any way. We only do it if she chooses to when I invite her to, and I always offer that we can set it aside for the moment if she gets really frustrated, but she almost always chooses to push through.
