Independent Reading

Alyssa is 3 years and 5 months

Independent Reading Update
Alyssa is reading quite well now. We are currently on the search for an age appropriate curriculum that meets her reading needs (phonics, literature-based, etc.) She is reading many first and second grade books with ease. She still eagerly awaits school time. Any recommendations would be GREATLY appreciated? I look forward to hearing about your experiences with available products. I have been spending too many hours researching online and would love to hear your opinions at this point. The picture below is an old one of her reading one of the same books listed below. I didn't take any photos today. 

DEAR time (Drop Everything and Read) usually lasts 15-20 minutes, but today Alyssa sat and read for a longer period of time.

She read the following books independently:
1.) Mouse Tales written by Arnold Lobel
2.) Mouse Soup written by Arnold Lobel
3.) Frog and Toad Are Friends also written by Arnold Lobel
4.) The Pigeon Wants a Puppy written by Mo Willems

I hope to hear from you soon!
