Need a LA program
Ok we have been struggling through Winter Promise LA1. It is way overwhelming for my DD1. She went through Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons last year with no struggles. She can read stories like Amelia Bedelia and other easy readers. This squirrel book is too much on one page and has words that she doesn't know at all. Also it seems as though it doesn't 'get harder' as the year goes on but starts hard and stays that way for the whole book. Maybe b/c the kids start at different levels and the parent can adjust through the year? I know it suggests to have the parent read some until the child can take over but I am reading most of it with her reading maybe 6 sentences each day. When we pick up the book you can see the excitement leave her face
I was hoping the reader would have something to do with the actual program we are using (HiH).
Also the spelling words are crazy. We have had bark three times over the 11 weeks we have been doing school. Also this week they have words together that I would think confuse the kids. Her, sure, bird. They all have the 'er' sound but are spelled differently. Wouldn't you introduce them separately so it wouldn't confuse the kids?
Could someone suggest a program that might work well for us? I really enjoy WP for history and science but think we need to go elsewhere for spelling/phonics/grammer. I need to purchase next years curriculum in Feb so I am also looking for whole programs as well. I need for a K and 2nd grade. Thanks
