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
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.
