With my almost 8 year old son:
1. All About Reading
2. About 20 minutes, 4x / wk
3. Letter tiles, a notched card (he's outgrown this and now uses a bookmark under each line), and a pencil (I often have to remind him to start at the beginning of a word by touching it with a pencil point
4. I have no idea what grade or level he's working at...dyslexia is so weird. It's like his ability to process written words varies from day to day and minute to minute. Friday he started out the lesson by fluently reading a whole sentence including the words "great crowd," "whispering," and "appearing." Then for the rest of the time struggled with words like of, for, what, was, magic E words, etc. He fatigues very quickly when reading. I feel for him. I swear, struggling through this learning to read thing with him is one of the hardest things I've ever done! It doesn't help that his 2 1/2 year old brother is starting to sound out words, ugh.
