It had been a while since we last read Peter Rabbit or watched the DVD, I was surprised when Asher came home talking about Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail. I then checked with teacher and got to know they were told about the story in school as it was the Speech & Drama theme for this term.
Instead of playing the DVD back home, we went to library and borrowed a few books and I read them to him again. It is no doubt he understands the story better and enjoys our reading session together.
See, this was his summary after reading, for the first time, I didn’t have to rephrase, everything here was his own words, look as if he had read it a thousand times! 😂 Besides, I had to stop him from going on and on, *copying 2 pages or more is no joke!
*In order to improve his writing speed and copying skills, I would ask him to tell me any event/story in simple words, then we rephrase and he copies from mine.
