Something interesting began happening with Daughter Q. at this point. I see this with students on occasion, so I thought I’d mention it. If you notice, it took three full lessons to get through the book a single time. This particular book is full of new sounds, and I try not to introduce too much in a single day. But once we were through the book the first time, she was able to read it all in a single sitting. This shows us that sometimes we might begin to feel like it is going to take ten or twelve lessons to get through a book…and we might be totally and completely mistaken!
I emphasize trying to keep everything at the student’s personal pace. They will go slooooow, and then they will go fast, and it is our job to gauge what they are and are not capable of.
