I am excited to tell you that this week I will be writing a series of blog posts on how we are teaching beginning reading as part of Lydia’s kindergarten homeschooling!
There is more than one way to skin a cat, and there is certainly more than one way to teach beginning reading. I will be outlining the approach that is working for us right now. If you are teaching a youngster to read, feel free to follow this approach or just read through the posts to get some ideas. My goal is to show you that teaching beginning reading is easy and fun, and doesn’t require tons of time, worksheets, or a teaching degree.
Full disclosure: I should tell you that I do have a teaching degree, and it probably does give me more confidence. However, it also gives me the liberty to tell you that teaching reading is NOT rocket science. Anyone who really wants to teach a child to read can do it! I learned MUCH more about how to teach reading by being a classroom teacher than I ever did by taking a college-level education class.
The first post in the series will be tomorrow! Please try to get some sleep tonight despite your excitement over this new series. See you soon!
