Sheena P. has been a part of our Homer Ambassador group for a few months now, and has recently celebrated success with her son being crowned the ‘Sight Word King’ this summer. It’s not easy to get a budding reader excited about sight words, and she’s willingly shared some of her personal tricks that led to her child’s recent success. We’re excited to share her tips and also laud her son’s great achievement!

Learning to read is one of the most difficult and important skills a child develops in the early years. It is also the skill that best predicts how well that child will do in school—and beyond—for years to come.
