Will and I are working through The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading. So far, he is doing well and really getting it. Teaching reading is the thing I am most nervous about in homeschooling. Hannah skipped off to school for two years and came back reading, so this is a first for me. Will and I like his phonics lessons because it's our time. We can cuddle up on the couch while Hannah reads to or plays a game with Peter. Hannah claims entertaining Peter is the hardest part of her day. I totally agree, sweetie. : )
Will is also loving the Handwriting Without Tears Pre-K program. He is a lefty and very reluctant to write. The little slate chalkboard/chalk bits is his favorite. He seriously begs to write on it.
