Self-Taught Reader

Some of you may know that I’m unschooled. Recently, I taught myself to read. If you don’t know what unschooled is, please visit my mom’s website – Below is a video I made of me reading, ” When I Get Bigger,” by Mercer Mayer. When I read the “Grandma and Grandpa’s” part, I meant to add an “S” sound at the end of Grandpa. I hope you like it. Bye! :)

(PS – that’s me in the picture below the video climbing a pole in the basement of our local library. We have game days at the library with some home school/unschool friends.)
