Yes my DD is 4 and will be 5 in the spring. DH & I are avid readers and have read to her since day one. I have been working on phonics, various workbooks and so on to get her reading. (it's wonderful so why would I want her to be denied this?) she acts like she wants to read. Wants to read the direction for games, reads to her animals (live and stuffed) wants me to read to her, tries to read the newspapers, streetsigns, billboards and so on. But i have noticedsomething and I am not sure what to do. I picked her daily books for the week. These are books that were read other in the spring. All of the books I picked she "read" tome exactly. Placing her fingers on the words. 1st & 2nd book I was happy, 5th book I was worried. There was no hesitating, no mistakes. So I wrote a few passages down (typed them too) and tried to get her to read them. She had no clue what they were.had difficulty sounding some of them out. Once she recognized the passages she started " reading" easier.
Honestly. What do I do here? How do you teach reading to someone with that much recall? I mean I can remember about 80% of everybook Ive read and maybe 5% of what I 've heard ( by 7th grade my teachers just gave me transcripts of the class I just attended so I knew what was said) so I'm not sure what approach or teaching method to use.
Please. Any help or guidance is appreciated. .
