If you can give your child a thirst for reading, the total globe opens to him. We noticed it with Joy, who at 6 was reading at a level twice her age. But for Joy, a visual learner, the method had been an easy, almost effortless process. When we experimented with to use the same methods with Hope, we found two things: Hope is not a visual learner and we truly had no approach to teach reading! So with Hope we had to start from scratch. We discovered ourselves bouncing from one strategy to an additional, scatterbrained, but as well bad to put out the megabucks essential for any of the flashier applications. And as you may expect, we did not make a good deal of progress. Then we stumbled across this guide! What a need to have it met.
Phonics-based mostly, easy to adhere to, affordable, nonconsumable, and self-contained, it was all that we have been looking for. There are no workbooks, no flashcards, nothing fancy—just you, one-on-one with your child for twenty minutes a day.
Based mostly on the nationally productive DISTAR plan, this program has been adapted for parent and child use, and seems custom-made for the home school setting. Yes, this technique does use visual clues in the first 80 lessons, but then they drop the clues and your child takes off working. We have been doubtful at first, but after going by means of it with four young children and hearing hundreds of “success” stories, we're believers! Soon after 100 lessons your child will be reading at a sound 2nd grade level.
My only complaint requires the stories. There is a new story each and every lesson, commencing at lesson 13, and they are also silly for my tastes. But they were the highlights for all our youngsters, so I won't complain as well loudly! Hope, right after 50 lessons, was reading smoothly, writing short “stories,” and on her own picked up and read other "easy" books. She completed the guide before her 5th birthday and effortlessly moved into a 3rd grade reading text. Grace also finished the program whilst nevertheless 4, even though there had been days that we more than exceeded the 20 minutes prescribed.
