jlstrick Posted June 19, 2012 Share Posted June 19, 2012 Hi! I have a 4.5 year old girl that can spell and read simple 3 letters words. She knows the main sound of all the letters. I want to give her a solid foundation with spelling and reading but I didn't learn phonics at all. I kind of hit a walll and don't know where to go next. I have read alot of information on this board about PR, SWR, Happy Phonics and PALs. I like phonics road, but I want some games and was thinking of getting the SWR Fun phonogram packet with phonics road? I know if I do PR, then I should do it really slowy. I think Happy Phonics and PALs also teachs phonograms in a fun way so maybe I should do those first and when she is older do Phonics Road. But I like having an end in mind (big picture of where I am going)---so that is why I thought just starting with Phonics Road and include games with the phonograms. I also wanted to slowly introduce cursive because she enjoys writting and drawing, so I am also interested in SWR but it looks really intense. I also have a 3 year old girl and a 4 month baby--so I don't have tons of extra time. So many wonderful choices! I know I need to introduce all the letters sounds, phonograms next year in fun way for 4.5 and 3 year old. I like the guidance with PR but want to ideas to make it fun and (maybe) slowly include cursive. I also read the post about using Touchphonics with younger children. So maybe that is an idea. Does anyone have any advice or suggestion? If you have any experience with the above problem--I would love to hear. I know I will probably just need to try some thing out and change if it doesn't work. What would be your suggestion for me to try first?? thanks soo much! My brain is about to explode learning about phonics! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
