TMarie Posted July 10, 2009 Share Posted July 10, 2009 (edited) My 8 year old ds will be repeating 2nd grade this coming year. We just can't move on with his delay in reading skills. Now I know we should have started him a year later in K. We have and continue to slowly trudge through The Ordinary Parents Guide. He just doesn't get sounding out phonics; we're on about lesson #40. Explode the code doesn't really give much success, and we are stalled out about half way through book #1. At the same time we've been working on theOPG, we've gone through most of 1st grade R&S reading. He felt real success in reading as he memorized words through the R&S sight-word based methods. We cannot continue with R&S because it progresses much too quickly. Now what? I think maybe a colorful workbook would be helpful for him. He'd need to start back on 1st grade level. As for grammar: we've tried FLL but he just does not retain any information orally; after trying it several times over 2 years he has no idea what a noun is. We tried language lessons by Queen homeschool, again too oral with no retention. Hence, the need to just start at the beginning. Please help!
