He knows all but 3 of his consonant sounds (he didn't know J, G or Q and I'm assuming it's because they are less common). He knows all his short vowel sounds. He seems to get a little confused over some of the capital versus small letters.
He can easily sound out short words as in the BOB Books, but definitely doesn't seem to want to. I got him through a few new ones yesterday.
Would you bother right now? If so, what would you use to help him get reading? We have Phonics Pathways and The Reading Lesson to work with.
If you weren't going to push reading, what workbooks or other things would you use to get him more prepared and give him more confidence. I'm thinking he's not wanting to sound out words because it feels like it means he doesn't "know" it. What are some suggestions for things that would better prepare him with the sounds, letters, etc.?
He's doing R&S math 1 with no problems whatsoever, and loves any and all things science. I'm inclined to tell DD to NOT worry about the reading right now, but maybe suggest some other things that would be good prep and get him ready and confident for a little down the road.
