PrincessMommy Posted December 23, 2011 Share Posted December 23, 2011 My 10yr old is in a Montessori school and one nice thing is they don't have much homework. However, he's a struggling reader. We've spent the 2 previous years with reading tutors and this year he has a tutor who comes to school...but she is mainly focusing on his memory and comprehension. This is the area that is the weakest... but it definitely affects his reading. (i.e. he'll read a word at the top of the page but cannot remember that he just read it a few sentences later). We read with him about 20 min a day after school, but I'd like to work on some other things too. I've noticed that some of his previously learned skills are slipping. He's constantly forgetting to use the long vowel on a vcv (like "home") in words. He used to have that down pat. Most of the phonics programs I used or looked at when homeschooling were for younger kids. I've got an old Victory Drill book that I might use, but wondered if there was something else for older kids who struggle to read. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
