mumkins Posted July 14, 2012 Share Posted July 14, 2012 My oldest went to K and didn't learn to read. I tried a million and one things and somehow, her reading just took off at 7.5. By 9, she was reading 1" thick books in a day and now at 10, often reads more than that. My 2nd child, at 5, I taught him the sounds of the letters and a few blends and then he pretty much taught himself to read. Now my 3rd child, I've tried quite a bit. She's 6.5. Perhaps she's like her older sister and will just take off soon. But I'm looking for something to stick with. I like Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading. But, as if reversing b and d and p and q wasn't enough, they've used a font that maked t an upside down f and an upper case I is the same as lower case l. Not helpful for little ones just learning to read. It confuses my DD everytime. Also, I don't like how they teach ending blends. Instead of 'mp' for example, I'd rather it teach 'amp', 'emp', 'imp', 'omp', 'ump'. Though I appreciate how it thoroughly works through everything needed to be a strong reader. I know we aren't missing anything. Worksheets would be good. Readers would be awesome! It also can't be too time consuming as I've got 5 kids. Any ideas?
