I’m sure many parents worry about their child learning to read. I know I do a lot considering I plan to homeschool my sons. I have helped homeschool my nephew and nieces however, when they began homeschooling they already had a pretty good foundation in reading. My two sons though are ages 33 months and 13 months. So I will be laying the foundation for their reading skills. I have been doing a lot of research in the internet homeschool “world” to see what resources are out there to help me with this. I subscribe to Freely Educate’s email newsletter. They are a wonderful source for the homeschooling parent. Right now they have a giveaway for Level One All About Reading curriculum. So I went and looked at it and was really impressed. This curriculum has a 1 year money back guarantee. Here is what the publishers of All About Reading say about it:
“Here’s Why All About Reading Works
Your child will be actively involved in the learning process. This is a true multisensory program: your child will learn through sight, sound, and touch. Everything is taught in context, and your child applies new learning right away. Your child will be engaged in thinking, processing, comparing, and learning.
Students who use the All About Reading method tend to feel a sense of excitement in learning. And they should! They are learning how to think, explore, and grow in their abilities. They feel successful as they see continual progress.
There are no gaps in this program. Your child will be taught everything he or she needs to know about reading, so no guessing is required. Each new concept builds upon the previous one, and no steps are skipped.
There are five key components of reading—and our program teaches all of them thoroughly. Those components are:
- Phonological Awareness
- Phonics and Decoding
Most importantly, All About Reading is committed to results. The All About Reading program has a very focused mission: to enable you to teach your child to read as quickly as you can, while guaranteeing retention and enjoyment. Our approach to reading develops children into confident readers who absorb and retain new information.”
