It is has become a ritual now for us all to read in the morning at breakfast.. it also helps that it is less formal and especially for Lil’ Lady there is less pressure for her to “perform”. Now we read becasue we have a love of reading, and because she observes us all reading she wants to find her own enjoyment.
I use this time to listen with one ear for a while, and chime in occassionally, then sit back and let her navigate the pages for herself. Seems to be working….
Traditional phonics don't work for Lil lady …having a lisp hasn't helped .. I've tried all different techniques and lost the battle . So we've done it her way… if she has an intetest in books she's more determined to read. ..and the Beast Quest books have sparked an interest (woop as I love fantasy fiction.) These are her first real chapter books..with lots of difficult words ..but she's getting there. So proud if her efforts. #homeeducation #homeschool #100daysofhomeed #homeeducationuk #education #welovehomeed #literacy #english #reading #homeeducation #homeschool https://homeeducatingtheminions.wordpress.com/
