Snowfall Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 We just completed Phonics Road 1, halfway through second grade. We started late and although she's a now a great reader (we skipped the readers - she was well past that stage when we got to them) and I think she's perfectly on grade level for spelling, I just couldn't rush it. In fact, right now I'm considering going back through to make sure all of those words are really cemented. The reason for that is that I simply could not stay on words that she missed until she got them right every week. There would've been a backlog. I printed flash cards of all the words, in the hopes that just reading them enough would help her remember them, and it did help, but she still doesn't know all the words. I already own level 2, and I hear people say there's a complete review of level 1 in level 2, but I don't see that at all! In fact, given that there are 15-20 words per week in both levels, and both have 34 weeks, that's not even possible. So has anyone else stopped and reviewed level 1 for a month or two before moving on? Surely my child isn't the only one who doesn't have every word from level 1 down pat before finishing it up, right? Do the rest of you just assume that they'll pick it up along the way, from reading or whatever? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
