On Teaching Children to Read

Posted By Smockity Frocks On September 5, 2011 @ 9:53 am In Homeschool,Parenting | 9 Comments

First, let me tell you that I have some children who have taken to reading like a duck takes to water and some who seemed to wake up every morning completely alphabet free, even after oft repeated reading lessons.

Remember that each child is different, and some have an easier time understanding and remembering theĀ  rules of phonics.

Having said that, here is a rundown of posts I have written on teaching reading:
