I can't find a way to explain phonics to him.
Just when I think I've got the best example, I find a totally different "rule" in phonics. I just drilled into my sons head that EA sounds like EE and then expected him to pronounce the word Break.
How do we get passed this? What makes it harder is that I'm totally unaware of the way it is taught in class...how does his teacher show them, and how can I keep up the pace at home without spending a week or so in class observing her tactics?
