(First, a confession: I am only a wannabe homeschooler - we haven't made it there yet)
DS is about to turn 4 and is very ready to jump into learning to read. He's already got his letter sounds down pat, as well as a few sightwords. I need some fun (and EASY - I'm 30 weeks pregnant and working more than full time) activites to help him through the next steps.
It wouldn't hurt to gather a little advice about what the next steps are, too...
I taught DD to read, largely at home, around her 5th birthday, but that was 7 years ago now, and my only memory of that time is the first time she sounded out the word HOP in "Hop on Pop."
I'm a tree-hugging, breastfeeding, non-circing, vaxing, co-sleeping/bed-sharing, ethical eating, nearly vegan, home-birthing, Pagan, Unitarian Universalist, pro-choice, cloth diapering, Scorpio, feminist, half-Canadian, animal activist mommy to one clever little girl (11), the cutest little boy ever born (3), two mischevious rescue mutts (fixed), and an attention starved rescue kitty (also fixed). Married to my own personal MacGyver.
