We are using this curriculum with our youngest daughter (age 6). We waited until the end of our last school year to start her in K because she wasn't quite ready until then. We are starting week 12 this week and we're working on phonics. My question is, should I make flash cards/ring cards with the words she's learning on the workbook pages each week? Some of them are names, are the rest of them site words?
She really wants to learn how to read, but can't learn it all at once! She gets frustrated with phonics at times, so I don't want to push to the point where she'll hate to read. I have a big book of Dick and Jane stories. Any thoughts on using this with our curriculum?
When we read, I move my finger along the words and sometimes she tries to say some of the words and other times she asks me to stop doing that so that she can just look at the pictures. Does anyone have any insight to offer? At this point, should I be teaching her site words or wait until we get to first grade? Should I just stick with the curriculum or add the to it???
