Can I ask why you prefer Phonic Pathways?  My son is starting a french immersion program this sept.....there will not speak nor read in English.....all french 90% of the time.....so I need to teach him to read and write in English at home....I keep trying on my own but it's just not sinking in.

Interesting. I may give it a read. Thanks for posting.

My whiteboard method is working.. mostly. But if I can improve I will definitely go for it.

100 easy lessons uses phonetic symbols that were confusing to the kids, plus requires writing as part of the program to be fully utilized. My oldest has mild cp and couldn't do the writing. So I bought pp for him originally. Dd is dyslexic so the symbols in 100 just threw her off more. Ds 2 was limited by the symbols and couldn't read a book without them, so we switched him over to pp, which teaches the rules rather than using symbols.


Basically, for my kids it worked better to have a simpler, basic method.

What exactly are you doing with your whiteboard method?  I have tried flash cards and I sit down with him on starfall.com but it's not working....I'll take any suggestions :)
