Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons?

Postby 4given » Tue Jul 22, 2008 6:26 am

My first two sons learned to read using ABeka K4, many moons ago. Now that it's time to teach my third son (of 4), I needed something with a little less "fluff" but all the "meat." I just purchased the "Teach Your Child...." second-hand and I am looking forward to using it.

What has been your experience with it? Are there any downfalls?

Thanks. :)

We just started using it yesterday. I had been trying other methods to teach my 5 year old to read and so far nothing has really clicked. I'm hoping this will work!
Good luck!

I haven't used it, but my friend taught all three of her boys using it, then moved on to Explode the Code from there to fill in the blanks for spelling. She loved ow simple it was. Just like with everything else, remember we are homeschoolers and flexible is our middle name, so don't stress out if you don't do the whole lesson each day, sometimes they can be too long for little ones.

We used it. About halfway through we started supplementing with the Starfall books and then easy readers, alternating a lesson one day, free read the next. It took longer, but it was more enjoyable than the first half the book had been.

We tried it, but my son wasn't ready to read at the time. I didn't care for the lettering in the book and I ultimately taught him to read using Abeka.

I appreciate the replies. My son is doing well with this approach. I was checking back in today to find that site you suggested for the writing worksheets, Lily. Thanks!
