Reading

Reading 1 Mahmud has been working so hard at his reading skills.
Reading 2 He has shown great improvement and read a story to Metropolitan Class on a Friday afternoon before Christmas.
Reading 3 Both the Metro class and Mahmud enjoyed this experience so much, he repeated it with a different story last Friday.
