Storytime With S: Dad and Sam

Guess what?! 

My little boy is getting the hang of reading! It's been a HUGE struggle (and frustration) for him since he has some visual processing issues associated with his Sensory Processing Disorder. His ability to track letter-to-letter and word-to-word is very difficult...but he's doing it!

Looking for a creative way to encourage his reading - we already do star stickers on his Hooked on Phonics poster - I decided to record him with my old camera so he could SEE and HEAR himself reading. He thought it was "really cool" and asked if I would "share with the world". So, here it is!
And if you could leave a comment for him, it would be AWESOME! He's looking forward (excitedly and anxiously) to seeing who listens to his video story! Thanks!
