We used Abeka this past year and the books are just darling. I have been looking around for other reading programs because we are not using Abeka for our other subjects this year. I really have not found another I like. I looked at R&S and like that its bible based but not sure my daughter would like it. Some of those bible names and words would be hard for her to read.
Just curious as to what reading programs you are useing. I may consider not useing a formal program and just useing the library for reading.
We are useing MFW for history/science/bible and art. Sequential Spelling,Rod and Staff English and A reason for Writing. Just need to pick out a reading program.
What do you mean by "reading"? Are you looking for phonics or comprehension? I like Explode the Code for phonics (through 4th), MegaWords for advanced phonics (4th thru adult) and Reading Comprehension from Varied Subject Matter for comprehension (2nd thru 11th). I prefer library books for just plain old "reading" or to practice oral reading. Anything from Mother Goose to classical poets are great for using reading to work on memory (if you're not already using Bible for that).
No not phonics just reading. Most have a formal reading program in addition to a phonics program. We will not be doing phonics this year. Abeka has a great reading program with great readers but since we are not useing Abeka I was looking around for something else that may be cheaper. Rod and Staffs reading program is to black and white for us. I know some do not use a reading program and I have thought about just doing library books.
Thanks Ladies. We do normally get books off on the sonlight list at the library for her to read. She reads pretty well just want to improve on the level.
I had thought about Teach Your Child to read in 100 easy lessons for my 5yr old but it did seem alittle odd when we looked at it. I wasnt sure if we should use it or not. We are going to use MFW K for her. I wonder if we could use this in addition to MFW K?
