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

MCP Phonics

Saxon 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 used a 99c store phonics book, leapfrog letter factory, word factory, and BOB books.

Once we had a grasp, I added in All About Spelling.

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.

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.
