ByGrace3 Posted August 18, 2012 Share Posted August 18, 2012 So after a shaky phonics start with ds, I think think AAR might be the next step. But I cannot decide which level. I am leaning towards pre-level but would love some input. ds is 5.4 knows all letters and sounds (lowercase and capital) but cannot blend. hardly at all. He can say /b/ /a/ /t/ but then just repeats that over and over, rarely getting to /bat/. Other than confusing b and d, he doesn't struggle at all recognizing the letters or quickly producing sounds. He rhymes well (though his words are usually nonsensical), can easily identify beginning letter sounds of a word, he struggles with ending sounds. He has some speech issues, just recently got the /f/ and /v/ sounds but has trouble distinguishing those in a word. He struggles with a few sounds /r/ /l/ /th/ being the main ones. Thoughts? The thought of another big purchase this year is kind of killing me, so looking to buy pre level and level 1 is a tough though...but we do what we need to do... :rolleyes: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
