My little Bear 2.11, the one who hides what he can do academically as opposed to his brother who was happy to be put through his paces and breathed workbooks, actually read a book to me today!!! It was a one sentence a page type book and admittedly I sort of tricked him into it by starting the first few sentences and trailing off so that he would finish them, but we KNEW he could do it. Whenever we asked him to read he said that he couldn't and we responded with, "Yes you can" since we knew he could since we had caught him reading a word or two prior to this.

Not only that, but he actually did some math for me today too!!! Basic stuff, 1+1, 1-1, 3+1, but he did it out loud so I finally had proof he could.
