Reading has been a large part of my children’s early education. While they were still in my womb I would sit in a rocker and read children’s books aloud. As three and four year olds, they are able to sound out words, identify sight words, and read beginner books on their own.Up until recently, I have never used a set curriculum for any of our learning time lessons. Winging things and allowing my daughters to determine how and what they learn, so far in our homeschooling journey, has worked for us and has proven to be beneficial. With our third child on the way I knew that a more structured time and curriculum was needed so I have begun a search for resources that will help homeschooling with a newborn and teaching preschoolers to read a little easier.
We recently started using the Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read Kit. The kit comes with enough resources to use for the next two school years, making it a great investment for homeschoolers. It is well structured and gives parents and educators step-by-step instructions on how to best use every item in the kit.
