Fourmother Posted February 11, 2008 Share Posted February 11, 2008 I been using Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons with my 4 year old daughter and we've hit a snag. She knows the sounds of the letters covered so far, but she is unable to sound out the words without pausing between each sound. Instead of mmmmaaad, she says mm... aa...d. She can't "say it slow" until she hears me do it first. She just repeats what I say without understand how to do it. I wasn't concerned about this at lesson 10 or 15, but at lesson 25 I was surprised that this wasn't beginning to click for her yet. We've gone well beyond the point where the book assumes the pupil is able to do this. (Or at least try on her own.) I put 100 Lessons aside and decided to try again from the beginning in a few months. Lately we've been playing with letter magnets and tracing letters on her slate board, but she misses the book and frequently asks to do "our reading lessons." I used 100 Lessons with great success with my older children when they were 4, and we've never had this problem. Is there way to help her master the skill of sounding out? (No flames about early reading please. This is something that is important to my family.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
