A note from Teacher Stephanie:
“Joyleen is the most eager reader. She will come most afternoons to read, sitting on my couch to read out loud, sounding out words, and even affecting deep and high voices while reading the Three Little Bears! Not bad for a first grader who is learning English as a third language!”

I would say she is very curious – she is always asking how to pronounce words, or “teacher this is what in French?”
