Teaching reading

My first grader is not very enthusiastic about reading. I knew I had to get creative. My sister in law is a first grade teacher and she gave me some creative ideas for getting Carter interested in reading. Her one idea was making him a tool belt with "tools" -words! I used sight word cards and glued sandpaper to the other side. Another idea i came up with is using his nerf gun. He has to hit near a word and read it. He told me tonight that he loves his new way of learning to read. Totally made my day:)
