Sahmqui Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 (edited) I want to know what program, books, curriculum, video, etc you used successful to teach your child to read. Did you use a phonics base, spelling base, or memorization base method to teach them how to read? When did you start letting them read on there own? (allow them to choose, and what books did you allow) How did you advance their reading to reading chapter books by themselves (ex. Magic Tree House, etc)? When did you introduce sentence structure? (punucation, subject, predicate, etc) I am trying to see pattern or time line here. I am very new to teaching subjects but not new to teaching (I teach my kids w/o even knowing it). I know that I want my child to have the ability to read anything, I just do not know how to get there. For example, when to introduce phonics rules, sentence structure, nouns, etc. Or wait until their 8 or older. I just I want to see the success of reading and the progression from learning letter sounds to reading at a college level :) Thanks in advance for answering my question so that I can see your progression and success :D BTW - my 2 DD are working together learning letter sounds, DS reads at second grade level, and the baby just listens.
