Dot-to-dot

My 6 year old says he can’t read, though I’ve been seeing signs of growing literacy since 3, starting with symbols on the remote control and pictorial signs at the park. Last night we went to Pizza Express and he enthusiastically drew on and did the dot-to-dots on his children’s menu. He’s been through a phase of avoiding/seeming uncomfortable with anything literacy related, around when his same-aged friends started school. It was really nice to see him enjoy this, with no feelings of inadequacy or fears of failure.
