tld Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 I'm doing kindergarten with DS. He's 5. We've been doing Sing, Spell, Read,and Write for his phonics/reading program. He knows all his letter sounds very well. Four lessons ago we started the ferris wheel and blending basic 3-letter words and he's just not getting it. Maybe I'm not teaching it well or maybe he's just not ready or maybe the SSRW way of teaching blending just doesn't connect with him. I'm not sure what it is or if it's a combination of the 3. Since we started the blending, it's been stressful and not fun for either of us. At this point, I'm planning on just trudging through the SSRW curriculum until we get so stuck that we just can't continue, hoping that something will click with DS in the meantime. I think I'll slow down our pace too. Should I try supplementing with something else too? I signed up for the free trial of Reading Eggs today. DS enjoyed it, but he seems far beyond these beginning lessons. Would Explode the Code be of any benefit? Or do I just need to stick with the plan in the above paragraph for now? OR is that a bad plan? I guess I just need some direction. :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
