a27mom Posted August 6, 2012 Share Posted August 6, 2012 (edited) (ETA: That is supposed to say "memorizer" - stupid auto correct) Hi I am new here. I hope it is ok to ask this question here. I think it fits this board best. My 4 (almost 5) y/o is good at memorizing. She has memorized many of her books and then sits and "reads" them. We are starting k and working on reading as she knows all the letters and sounds etc... I am having a hard time teaching her to sound out words because once she sees a word (in isolation) a few times she knows it. She gets frustrated when I try to make her sound it out because if I just tell her what it is, it is easier to just remember it. Although I suspect she is gifted, I am HG and dh is at least bright and gifted in math, she is not teaching herself to read or anything, just memorizing books by ear, and words in phonics lessons. Any suggestions? I suppose I should probably just be patient and it will come. Edited August 6, 2012 by a27mom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
