  1. This isn't really a trick, but when we come across those ir - ur words, I give a hint and say, "you spell it like the (make the phonics sound as you say it ) /urrrr/ as in hurt or nurse.....and for ir it is the /irrrr/ of bird. Then it is just a matter of seeing it and using those words over and over like the OP said about memorizing.

    We absolutely LOVED R&S Science Patterns of Nature, it was my daughter’s favorite thing all year !

    What phonics workbook do I want?

    I got it because it explains all the “rules†and has some extra stuff in it. It was very helpful to me.

    What phonics workbook do I want?

    We used Rod & Staff phonics workbooks (not the reading ones) grade 1 and LOVED them!!! They really helped cement reading, writing & spelling for my daughter. I never used ETC but they look fun. We also went rt into grade 2 R&S spelling and she didn’t love that at first..... but half way through she is really starting to like it. No dictionary yet, but that seems like you could easily add that in if you wanted too.

    What is your curriculum gets done programs.

    i am new here, but been a long time lurker and learned so much from these boards! My youngest is finishing up grade 2 and we ended up minimizing a lot from Aug until now: What gets done is Singapore Math Parts of The Good and The Beautiful LA & Lit Sentence Family Rod and Staff God's People Bible reader Awana verse memorization The Good & The Beautiful History Units 1 & 2 then we took a break because we have already done some of the early US history in the next unit. We have replaced it with BF Around the World With Picture Books Part 1 and it is fabulous! It encompasses history, geography, nature study, science, art, notebooking and literature Lots of read a loud books always gets done Art.....once a wk class and my little artist is always adding her creative touch to everything we do We try to get to Pentime but working on penmanship is not her favorite so it is a battle. Pretty much anything "writing" is difficult because she just wants to draw everything instead of write words :cursing:
