Default Re: Learning to Read

Ok. We have made this topic a stickie. It seems to come up every few months. I first want to encourage all GCMer's that you can teach your child to read. Just make sure that the child is doing some type of prereading for some amount of time. For example, reading the sign for Wal-mart, Target, Subway, McDonalds, etc. As many of us have learned the hard way, if the child is not reading to learn, it will be very frustrating for both parent and child.

I went back a few threads and gathered different suggestions from others. I tried listing them in order of phonics or sight words depending on your philisophy and your child's learning style. If any additions or modifications need to be made, please PM me.

I hope this helps!!! In no particular order:
