mommy5 Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 My K'er is beginning reading and almost to the end of our phonics instruction. She is doing really well ... can read through level 1 readers and beginning some level 2 readers. She seems to be able to decode words pretty easily ... it is the spelling that is causing us trouble. We only just started spelling this year as part of our curriculum so I have no experience with K'ers ... only with our 2nd grader who, even though struggled with learning to read is now reading and able to spell the words on our word lists after each lesson (AAS). I'm wondering if it is too difficult to do AAS with a K'er? Does anyone have feedback or opinions on this? I just figured since she could read words she would be able to spell them. She got about half of the word list right but many seemed like mistakes she shouldn't be making. :confused: Maybe I'm moving too fast, too ... we are doing the curriculum with both the 2nd grader and K'er and they are both doing phonics together so I've been having them sit together for spelling ... maybe I should go slower.
