Try explaining "eye" to a phonetic reader, or "phone," for that matter. And now I feel the need to tell you that "eye" is actually a tripthong.
I think. Who actually needs to know this stuff?
I want to cheer her on. Go, E! Conquer literacy, and then the world.
And I'm thrilled that she's so excited, but I'm on the verge of imposing a reading curfew. That's right, no more reading after 7. I'm going to have to force her to watch television. I can't get anything done because I'm stooped over another fairy-themed paperback, explaining that "ch" is not kuh-huh.
And then, because she is a child for whom concepts need to be grounded in reason, she asks, but why isn't 'ch' really a kuh-huh?
Anybody know the answer? I'll let you stay up past curfew if you do.
