Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons Review (Homeschooling Update)

Kembia is doing a modified Kindergarten.  She's pretty smart (of course all parents think most if not all of their kids are geniuses!) and kept asking and asking for school.

So I caved.  She does Kindergarten math, handwriting and the book Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons.

This book.  Oh how I hate this book.

Okay, that makes it sound like it's terrible.  And here is the thing.  This book works.  It really does. Kembia is 4 we have done very, very limited schooling with her, and she is sounding out small three word sentences 15 lessons into this book.

But it's driving me crazy.  Like I would rather listen to someone run their fingernails down a chalkboard.  It's repetitive, and the same thing day after day after day after day after day...

I'm sticking with it because it's working, we paid full price for the book, and I don't currently have the time to look for something else, but unless you truly don't mind endless repetition, I would say look elsewhere for a reading curriculum for newbies.  There has got to be something better!

  1. All About Reading is an awesome program. Pricey, but totally worth it!
