1st/3rd graders reading like 8th graders

I'll admit it,
I don't like grammar...never did. But, I do remember when I first learned to read. I would read street signs, cereal boxes, supermarket advertisers and anything else I could. I wanted to read everything. So I want my students to get that feeling as soon as possible. A lot of schools are dancing and playing games with 7-9 year olds. Not me, I'm teaching the joys of reading and what must feel like their first real achievment on their path towards mastering the English language.
