Katydid Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 Help! I need something to help me teach my rising first grader how to read. I had a baby this year so I didn't plan much for DD, but she is now ready and eager to begin learning how to read. My oldest taught himself to read when he was 4 and I never used any phonic programs with him, so this is all new territory. I have OPGTR, and have done the first couple of lessons with DD, but honestly I can't stand it.... it's just so boring. :leaving: DD loves to draw, color, write, etc. so I'm thinking something with worksheets with fun little activities would be good for her. I love the looks of All About Reading and thought I had decided on it, but I do question whether the program is worth the cost. Maybe something cheaper would work just as well? Then I saw the Explode the Code books and wondered if those would be a good fit. Is it a complete program, or just workbooks to help reinforce what they are learning in another phonics program? Are there any other fun, easy to implement phonics programs that you would recommend? Any and all thoughts are appreciated! :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
