Lena1967 Posted October 20, 2012 Share Posted October 20, 2012 My DD just started K. She was tested last month and is reading at a level that is near the end of 1st grade, as I understand it. She is the only person in her reading group in class, and while I know her teacher tries to meet with her every day, I would guess she's the first "group" to get skipped if time is short. For after-schooling, we are focusing on math (for which there is no differentiation), piano, and Mandarin. I have her read aloud to me each day and we also read at bedtime but am not sure what else I should be doing. She is quite good at sounding out words she doesn't know. Is it enough to supply her with books at and just above her level that she finds interesting, or should I do something more formal? BTW, I just love this forum and am so glad I found it! I find it really supportive and helpful. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
