I've heard many good things about both, and I've also heard the bad. So now I'm asking you moms who may have experience with either. Which do you think really "teaches" the child to read? I keep hearing that they only teach the children to memorize. Well I don't need my children to memorize, I want them to actually learn to read. If you have no experience with either but maybe something else and would like to suggest it please do. My children are currently 3 (almost 4) and 2(almost 3. Thanks in advance.Answer Question
Flash cards and just 1 on 1 has worked best with my kids. We play word games and use the cards. All of my boys have been able to read before going to school. I think it's just silly to waste your money on some of the things offered when you can do it yourself. There websites that you can even print off worksheets and we still use those. My kids are 12, 10, 7, and 5.

tlsbooks.com, kidZone.com, preschoollearner.com There are tons of them, just type in a search engine free printable worsheets and you'll see the ones I've listed plus others. Some require you to sign up but I've never done that.
