Owen's Ka-Choo Book

About three weeks ago Owen asked me to read this favorite story of his called, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo! I thought it would be fun to read little parts of the sentences to him and leave out missing words just to see if he would remember them. I was shocked!!! He kept filling in word after word. Finally, we decided to capture it on camera. Here it is for you to view (you'll need to go to the bottom of the blog and stop the music first!). You'll notice he still has a ball in his hands even while reading.

Owen is so smart. What a darling clip. Keep them coming. I want to see him cast off that foot ball for a touch down. Ryanna is due for another one of her pop song releases.Thank you so much for taking the time to blog. It makes my day when there is a new entry.

What a smart boy and with such a great memory! That'll come in handy when he does scripture mastery in Seminary! I really enjoyed the clip. It was fun to watch!

That's cute. Atticus can pretty much "read" the No David books by himself and it cracks me up. I love Ryanna laughing and showing off in the background. I can totally relate!

Great job Owen! I would definitely love to borrow your book to teach Jaxson to read. He knows all his letter sounds so I think he'll catch on pretty quick.

Fun to see Owen "reading". Who sneezes by saying Ka-Choo? What I want to know is approximately how many times have you read this story??? ;-)

Owen is a genius. While I'll need to administer a WISC to make it official I'm estimating a full scale IQ of about 150!!!
