So I've "just" been told that they expect my oldest who will be 5 in July to be able to read at least basic things when she enters kindergarten next fall!
This is surprising to me; because I remember learning how to read IN school! I asked the Pre-K she attends and they said she needs to recognize "sight" words; like "the" "and" "but" "or" etc...but that there's restrictions on how they're able to teach it to them? I don't really understand it.
Anyway - I've been looking online for worksheets or other ideas so I can help her at home get ready to read - I was hoping maybe some of you homeschooling Mom's might have some tips or links for me??
Please & Thank You! =)

This is the best thing I've ever found and it really works. For letter sounds, get leap frog's letter factory. For sight words get Preschool Prep "meet the sights words". It comes in 3 discs. Both of these have done wonders for my son.
Once she has the basic letter sounds down pat, start with a phonics program.
Also "phonics works" by k12 It's so awesome!! I just can't praise it enough.
