Verse Readers

K illustrated and bound his first readers. We used some of his paintings as covers, which I thought was a good use for them, and verses from stories we did in our first language arts block. K was reluctant illustrating the first one, but once he realized what he was making, he became much more enthusiastic. These readers contain verses that he has already memorized. The idea here is that his first reading experiences are completely positive ones when we sit down to 'read' them together. Reading readers that he doesn't have memorized comes later down the road.
