MEVmom Posted July 12, 2012 Share Posted July 12, 2012 My DD turned 5 in May and will be starting K this year. I started Phonics with her in January. At first we did Veritas (someone gave it to me), but it had too much going on. I wanted something simple, so we switched to OPG. She has made it to about lesson 47 or so. She is reading, but unlike DS, isn't REALLY taking to it naturally. We do have a few sets of BOB books. She has read the first 2-3 sets. But sometimes the BOB books make kind of big jumps and you get some incidental phonics in there. That was fine for my son because he sees it once and knows it. But my DD needs more practice to really catch on. It's hard for me to know if she in on track because DS was so advanced it skews my perception. That makes it hard to know if OPG is working, if she's really getting it... she still confuses lowercase b and d almost constantly. It just feels like we are stalling a little. I know she isn't even in K yet, so maybe I shouldn't be worried. But I want to get phonics right! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
