I'd like to start by saying I'm not a homeschooling mom. However my oldest is going to be 4yrs old in a month and he's asked a few times to be taught to read so he can read his books by himself. I can't think of any valid reason why I should tell him that he has to wait two years for school to learn to read. Right now he doesn't even know his letters. Like I said I'm not a homeschooler so I'm at loss as to how to go about teaching him letters and eventually to read. How did you teach your kids?
