Learning to Read/1st Grade Kit

Before We Read

This is the kit for my son's phonics/reading lessons.

This takes an approach similar to that of the Calvert School Kindergarten by giving the child pictures and allowing them to "read pictures" and to cut, paste and color.

Let's Read Pictures II

Before We Read II

Let's Read Pictures III.

One thing I do to build strength in their hands is let them color, draw and use clay or Playdoh. This will help when the time comes to use scissors and pencils, InshaALLAH.

InshaALLAH, I plan to supplement this with alphabet flashcards (leftover from the Calvert program) and the 100 Easy Lessons book (about $5 used) and supplements from Donna Young's website.

Right now, we are using various alphabet books to recognize the letters (by sound, not name).
