Hello, I am new to this site, but am beginning to homeschool my 5 year old twins. At this point I am using Teach Your Child to Read in a 100 Easy Lessons and my son is doing really well and sounding out words and reading. My daughter, on the other hand, is having a harder time connecting that the sounds she is saying are actual words although she has no problem with sounding out the letters themselves. Basically, I am assuming that my daughter is more of a visual, hands on learner and that I need to find some supplemental games, books, songs to add to this program. Does anyone have any ideas?

When my oldest son was 4/5, he could also sound out the letters by themselves but could not connect the sounds to make words. He didn't really learn to read until the end of kindergarten. That's okay. I really think it is just a "time" issue. Some kids can do it earlier (even by age 4) and some may not be able to do it till age 6. It just depends on the child.

I think she will come around in time.

Here is a link that might be helpful:

Thank you! Thank you! I appreciate the links, I know that my daughter will love a couple of these ideas already and they will help me reformat our day.

I've incorporated News-O-Matic to my school day. It's a fun, interactive daily digital newspaper for kids. They also offer a FREE teacher's guide to homeschool parents. Simply email info@press4kids.com for the PDF.

My kids love this app and are excited to read. They spend 30-45 minutes every day reading the articles.
