sixpence1978 Posted November 7, 2011 Share Posted November 7, 2011 I recently had to switch my moderately dyslexic DD from AAS to A&P for spelling. Up until now, we were also using AAS to fill in any holes in her reading, but it really wasn't helping with her spelling or her reading. She is now in third grade and reading on "grade level", but not very accurately. She still could use some review and work on some decoding skills. She went through Abeka phonics in K, Saxon Phonics 1 in private school for 1st grade, and then we were using AAS last year for 2nd grade. She has had extensive phonics, but nothing has really sunk in. She still will struggle with vowel teams. I was mostly interested in this program because she learns really well when things have a memory hook (like the phonetic farm) and lots of fun review (like the games). She is definitely a Sociable Sue and likes things to be interactive and fun. We are currently using Phonics Pathways, but not having a daily checklist or schedule doesn't really fit my teaching style. I do like having things laid out and activities already planned. So would this program move too quickly for someone needing mostly just more practice and review? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
