SFM Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 (edited) I ordered SWR and actually looked at LoE and thought I would like to "teach" more so I opted for SWR. Holy cow! It is a tad overwhelming, does it get easier? My son needed and still needs some phonics remediation and I thought this would be a good place to begin. I went ahead and got AAS for him because it seemed more open and go. I didn't want him waiting for me to learn a program before we began. So, now we are on AAS 2/3 and we are just not digging it. And, I am finding there are things that I teach and the later the letter doesn't really make that sound but it hasn't been "introduced" yet so we just move on. (Not so much in the dictation portions but more so in the other areas of his writing through the other subjects). So, here I am now wondering if I should have just gotten LoE or if I stick it out with AAS 3. I am a tad conflicted. I should note that I also have Spelling Power that I really like the look of but I feel it would be better for him once we establish good phonetic habits. I should also note that he is quite possibly mildly dyslexic and does not struggle with reading but has other issues in the way of spelling, doing things backwards, reversals, etc. Thoughts? How do you implement SWR? Should I just jump ship and do something completely different than these? I also have a dd starting all of this next year and would like to stick with one program if it is working. I was just looking at the cards (spelling rules and phonograms) and those I get. Maybe I just need to be diligent and get it done and do it. Wisdom? :bigear: Edited September 6, 2012 by SFM information Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
