Today Iona and I travelled on a coach-like bus to a neighbouring city for a home ed event. Having settled into our seats Iona looked up at the units above and said "Why is that "stop"?". I looked where she was pointing and found she was showing me the "STOP" button above the seats. She had never sat in a similar bus, with similar buzzers, so she had not recognised it from context or (I think) font. I therefore think it's safe to say, that Iona read her first word independently today - WOOHOO!!!!


  1. Wow, go Iona! That must have been such an exciting moment!

  2. It was! I think I'm still on a high from it!! Now I've just got to try to avoid pressurising her to repeat the feat with another word!

  3. Hehe, I'm sure there will be plenty more words sooner or later! I'm passing on The Versatile Blogger award to you. :) http://pyjamaschool.wordpress.com/2011/12/01/versatile-blogger-x2/
