Phonics Curriculum for Kindergarten

Cynthia - posted on 08/12/2009 ( 3 moms have responded )




Over the weekend I went to the Texas Homeschool Coalition Conference and found out that Sing, Spell, Read and Write was not for sell via retail. Does anyone have any suggestions for a great mulitsensory "true" phonics curriculum for a very active little boy?

I've used the Abeka phonics program, the ACE phonics program and the Rod and Staff first grade program. Of the three, R&S was by far the best. However, with my youngest, I'm going to use Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons. I found with my middle child, who is a reluctant reader, the phonics programs were by far too much information and became confusing.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I've found a wonderful phonics curriculum entitled Alphabet Island. You can check it out at: My children LOVE this curriculum. It is thorough, yet fun and not too much prep work for Mom. I'm using this with two active boys (ages 6 and 8) and they are doing very well.

I posted on the Abeka question what I do. Writing in their workbook would be kinestetic (have him trace with his finger, too), pictures are colorful and interesting, and go over the charts out loud for audio. Discusions for auditory, pointing out and charts for visual. Learning styles are a mindset for the teacher, you are in charge and can make anything work.
