diaperjoys Posted December 9, 2011 Share Posted December 9, 2011 My first grader is reading well, and is just finishing the CLE Learning to Read series. Is that enough?? CLE continues phonics instruction in their Reading curricula, even throughout second grade. Is higher phonics really necessary???? For example, is it necessary to have down cold the four spellings of schwa + r?? i.e. "er", "ir", "or", "ur"? Will I hamper his reading development if I stop our formal phonics training now? I'd like to free up some time to do extra work on math concepts. I'm sure there are a variety of opinions on the topic, and I'd love to hear them all!
