OPG and RME

My dd (6) is finishing up RME in 2 weeks. She's reading great! However, I was looking through my copy of OPG and noticed there are quite a few sounds she hasn't learned with RME. Do you think I should go back through OPG and do those lessons or just let her keep reading and start spelling in 1st grade next year?

 

Thanks!

I don't know what RME is, but if she's reading well I would say just let her read. Then when you do spelling, make sure you're using a program that covers all of the phonograms, rather than a program that just uses lists. Then she'll get all the sounds covered and you don't have to make her go through another reading program. I'm no expert - that's just what I would do.

Doesn't RME have a page in the back listing the sounds/phonograms that have not been encountered? I think it includes ideas on how to teach those remaining phonograms with book suggestions. You could go with those suggestions using OPG as a resource for word lists teaching those sounds.

Personally, if you are not starting AAS until next year and you already own OPG, I would spend the remainder of this year with OPG just hitting the lessons that cover phonograms your dd is not familiar with. Both of my younger dc had done CLE Learning to Read when we started OPG. I just started them each further into the book and we often skip lessons covering phonograms that I feel they have mastered reading. Their reading skills have really increased.

 

AAS will cover all of the phonograms eventually, but many of the advanced ones that OPG will cover, will not be covered in AAS until later books. So, you could improve her reading skills now and then AAS will work on using those same phonograms in spelling later.
