Phonics Update

so we made it through the 1st week of Saxon Phonics Kit K.

both my girls enjoyed it, for the most part. the letter of the week (the K level spends one week on each letter...from what the first several lessons are showing) was the letter L. we identified it, located it among other letters, made a list of words that begin with the sound and found pictures for many of these words.

kari, my 4yo, was right on target with it. as this is for her level. jaya, my 6.5 yo had fun (because i made it fun), but i could tell that she is beyond this. i had hoped to keep them together for would have made my life so much easier!

so i'll be pulling out the level 1 kit and looking through it tonight to see where it starts and where it ends. i want to give her a challenge yet i don't want to frustrate her--finding that delicate balance can be challenging!

i want their experiences with learning to read be a positive as possible (notice i didn't say 'easy'). [smile]

stay tuned for week 2 report!
