Say it like a Dictator
We've come up with a few little motivators over the last year that we've cycled through to help Lukas read, among which are letting him "read" (repeat back) through a megaphone, or while running circles around us, or while jumping only on the awesome squooshy fold-out mat on the ground, or withholding that drink of water til we're done (usually just drowned out the whole time hearing "I'm thirsty!" -"Ich habe DURST!") or repeating in sync with mom, or with dad. Lately, when we ask him to speak up and use his "big mouth"- the cue to open his mouth so we could understand him better -- this is what we get. Dictator voice. And it is SO SO funny, and SO hard not to laugh through the scripture stories when they're "read" this way.
