... I had a reading age of 8 when I started school!!!  



I remember at age of 8 being told my reading age was 13 which cheered me no end as that was the age of my eldest brother.

I can't remember not being able to read - could certainly do it before I went to school. Don't know how I learnt - just always knew how.


If you don't like something, change it -

I was like Amber, I just "got it" one day & have never been without a book on the go.

I learnt to read by having a matchbox with words in that we had to learn each week & books about coloured families (no NOT like that - Roger Redhat & Billy Bluehat etc & I think they lived in a village with 3 corners...)

I learnt that "A" was as in "apple" rather than "angel", "B" was "button" rather than "beach".  It drives my husband daft because he learnt the other way & can't do baby letters!

My little girl is learning to write now & she'll write 5 or 6 random letters down & ask what it spells - she's not quite worked out that just cos "afdwec" adn "oswlam" are letters, they aren't words!!
