My daughter (kindergarten) has been stubborn since day 1 and I can't teach her. She just shuts off when it comes to anything to do with phonics. I play tons of games with her, online and off but she doesn't learn anything from the games. I have had a horrible time just teaching her her abc's, she still doesn't know all of them. I started her in K12 on Jan. 2nd to see if they could get her caught up but they started her in Phonics where the other kids were which is more advanced than she is. I ttok her out because I didn't see a reason trying to start her in the middle of a subject. I have bought Hooked On Phonics and done lots of lessons with her but she hates it so much so nothing sticks. It is just a battle every day. I got her a Jumpstart version of hooked on phonics but she doesn't like it, which all it is for the most part is games. She just doesn't want to learn from me. I try to make up phonics games while we are out and she won't do them because she knows I am trying to teach her (there is no trying to trick her into playing learning games). If I thought she would be ok I would put her in public school tomorrow but I know she would be way behind. I plan on putting her back in school next year and need to get her caught up with the public school. She plays on Starfall, reading eggs and lots of other online games and nothing is working. I read to her alot which she loves but then I will try to get her to read small words like in or as and I sound them out for her and she just gets mad because I am trying to "make her read". What would you do in my situation.
