Reading And Writing

When I first laid my hands on The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading by Jessie Wise and Sara Buffington, I read in the beginning that her child began with letter sounds at age three.  Although many of my children learn their letter sounds around that age, I still took that to mean you can begin teaching a child to read at age three.  Gasp!  My child, at age four, and almost five, wasn’t reading and writing; he must be behind!

Teaching Reading Ordinarily

This is a continuation of homeschool curriculum series.  I’m sharing all about my experience over the past five years of using various homeschool curricula.  I hope this helps in your curriculum search.

I once had a friend tell me that teaching a child to read is the most difficult thing to teach a child.  Whether or not she’s right, it can definitely pose a big challenge.  We started homeschooling when my oldest was four, so I immediately began looking into reading curricula.  I was so overwhelmed by the amount of homeschool curricula, that I just turned my computer off, and called a few trusted friends.  🙂  What I ended up using was The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading by: Jessie Wise and Sara Buffington.
