After I’ve uploaded the video of Kaden reading at 3 years and 9 months old, I quickly realized the poor quality of the sound coming out from the video. I’ve received feedback that viewers could barely hear what he was reading about. I’m having a hard time hearing it myself. Oops.
I also came to understand that I shouldn’t take a video a short distance away from Kaden. Like I’ve done previously in his two earlier videos, it’s much better when I videoed him reading just right besides him. Furthermore, I can also take video of the text that he’s reading from at this angle. Lesson learned!
Anyway, here’s the video I took recently of Kaden reading at 4 years old. The book he read from is “Bad Weather, Good Weather” written by Pierre Latour. It’s a short reader passed down from one of his older cousins.
My sister was kind enough to pass me a collection of these guided reading books her two older daughters have outgrown. These guided reading books are produced by Macmillan under a series called Springgboard.
