I have a first grader whom I started homeschooling this year. The public school he was in let him get behind in reading. For instance he couldn't read a lick by the end of it. They were doing sight words and skipping words and guessing. He didn't learn any phonics. I bought Hooked on Phonics and started him on the Kindergarten program during the summer. He did make a ton of progress however he is still not at grade level. I bought the book, Teach Your Child How To Read in 100 Easy Lessons," for my younger son and considered restarting Aiden (oldest DS) as well. So now I am unsure because the book says not to use for struggling readers. I thought that if I started him all over using this method then he would at least get up to grade level. Has other people started this book when their child was struggling? Did it work? Do you think it's a bad idea to start him over using this book. Input is appreciated.
