Ever since we 100% decided to homeschool Josie I have had a constant, nagging fear in the back of my mind:
How on Earth do I teach this child to read???
We have spent lots of time learning to recognize the letters but I hadn't been brave enough to broch letter sounds. Then I started to hear lots of praise for the Leap Frog Letter Factory DVD.
So when we were in Minnesota I spotted it at Sam's and decided to give it a shot.
She has a hard time recognizing N, V, and X (she gets them confused with M, U, and K) but she knows the rest.
And she knows every letter sound!
I can't believe how quickly she picked it up. We started watching the Words Factory DVD today.
So Thank You Leap Frog for squishing my fear of teaching Josie to read! I'm pretty sure we can handle it from here!
