Clarita Posted October 19, 2021 Share Posted October 19, 2021 Learning to read is kind of a drag at our house. We are at the point where we are learning the phonics rules, like g makes the /j/ sound when followed by e or i. Math is fun, not in the everything is a game fun, but there's exploration discovering new things etc. We talk about what we learn outside of school time. There is this beautiful back and forth and dare I say "natural" learning going on. I just use the Singapore math, nothing too special. I teach/demo a topic from the textbook and then we/he works 3-4 problems. Learning to read has none of that. He loves books and can read if I say he has to. There is a desire to learn to read. When we learn a new phonics rule the joy just drains out, he sticks with me because he feels it's the only way. I'm afraid whatever we are doing now will squash his overall reading desires. I'm trying to use TOPGR (the WTM reading book), Dash into Reading for getting fluency, and AAR pre-reading because it seems like it's a little more fun.
