When did you learn to read?

I learned to read at a very young age and I started with the Mr. Men books! I’ve always been a fast learner and that applied when I was a child too :joy:

When I was at the Primary school I had to read with some of the children, the teacher was like “don’t tell them what it says” but I was like how are they supposed to learn if they don’t know what it says like I learned because my Mum used to read with me and if I struggled she’d tell me what it is and I’d remember.

It was painful to watch children unable to read what they had chosen and keep looking at me like pls help. Anyway there may be a method to this madness, I’m just a person with no teaching qualifications giving my outside opinion.

Soph has very few memories before she was 12. Though she struggled for a while, the words kept moving on the page thanks to dyslexia. Still dose now but we can manage it better. She learned to love ready at 12 so maybe that’s when :man_shrugging:

I have no clue, I don’t have many early childhood memories for some reason

Before kindergarten. I was one of those kids who always flexed when they were ahead of others when it came to learning

I was the type of kid who could tie my shoes when I was in preschool :joy: I was always demonstrating my superiority and reading was a just another thing to knock out at the ballpark. I think as I entered kindergarten or somewhere before or during that time.

I know it was before kindergarten because all the kids in the class used to ask me to read whatever the teacher wrote to them, but I don’t remember if it was three or four.

I remember that I learned the letters before starting school and reading easy stuff with the help of spelling out the letters. :thinking: I read a lot more as a kid than I do know :sob:
