“Despite the prevalence of the sight-word-focused early reading programs, I am still a fan of phonics-based reading curriculums. Most of my top readers have all learned through phonics, and it is also how I have taught my own children to read. Understanding your child’s learning style is critical to the success of any phonics book or kit. If your child needs more work blending or with certain endings, then you may need to spend more time in that area, move slower or focus on shorter sessions spread out over more days.”
