Brayden started Kindergarten this year which means it's time for him to start learning how to read. I discovered "What Children Need to Learn to READ" and thought it would be perfect for us! This book has everything including baby and toddler games, letters and sounds, and sight words.
Brayden knows his letters and sounds so we started the book at Chapter 8 which is Sight Words. I started out making flash cards that can be downloaded from LeanersLane.com, then we played a couple games of go fish which is one of the activities mentioned in the book. I was really surprised to learn how many sight words Brayden already knows!
I'm excited to finish out the rest of the book with Brayden and see how much it helps with learning to read.. Then I'm going to start working on it with Trevor using the toddler games and songs that are suggested in the book. We also received a CD with Rhymes and Songs such as Old MacDonald, Pop Goes the Weasel and other fun songs which are great for learning in the car!
