Yay for advanced reading! I'm really curious where ds will fall on his reading eval - we do the letter system here also.

OK, I've joined this board for my ds who has the "classic" gifted signs : very eary reader /mathy-sciency /incessant questioning.

But my dd2.5 blew me away yesterday, after coming to me with a "peanut butter" face, I told her she needed to go get a napkin and wipe her hands and face (but we were out of napkins in the usual place). So, I told her she needed to get into the drawer in the table on the left to get a napkin ...and she
understood this and did it!

I could see her computing the instructions. My ds was late with this type of multi-direction following, so it's fun yo see dd excel in her own way!
