DCG is having a hard time with reading. She is finally understanding that words are made of several sounds, and that each letter has a sound or sounds it makes. But she isn't getting the visual aspects of language. She knows most of her letters, and some of their sounds, but if she sees a word that starts with a ca she will always guess "cat", if she sees a word that ends with it she will always guess "sit" even when we have sounded out the words she will still just guess when asked to read it. It's so frustrating for me and for her. She doesn't get phonics, and I'm lost on how to help her. Anyone have any ideas?
