to teach a child to read?
Right now my 3 year old uses Starfall for basic phonics; next year for kindergarten I plan to use Catholic Heritage Curriculum's "Little Stories for Little Folks" phonics program.
Some others that are popular:
Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lesson
Ordinary Parent's Guide to Reading
Memoria Press Classical Phonics
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
I used Hooked on Phonics and Bob Books.
My ds really enjoyed the combo.
Quoting mem82:BOB books are helpful.
I never used a phonics book or program. All the letters and sounds were learned in a child lead fashion. I had plenty of letter tiles and materials available, when the child was interested in learning them we pursued that. Whe the child wanted to be read to, I read to them. We did have bob books available. My kids are now 11 & 9 and both read above grade level.
Ring Around The Phonics is learning disguised as a game, and my kids love it.. It also teaches several language arts subjects (K through 6th grade)
Thanks! :D I am looking into some different ideas. She is still in public school but having a lot of difficulty. I am planning on homeschooling next year all year.

all about reading
When I first started out, someone let me borrow their copy of "100 Top Picks for Homeschoolers" by Cathy Duffy and said it was a MUST read. After I skimmed through it I realized I needed my own copy! It was so helpful to me in trying to sort out what kind of learning style I have and what kind of learners each of my kids are, and then choosing curriculum based on that info.
You can find this at your library.
I am interested in this as well. Ds just turned 4 and I am concerned about teaching him to read.
