Pacing questions

Hello! I have a 5 year old (soon to be 6) that is doing LHFHG this year for Kindergarten. He can do most of the work well, although we are moving at a slower speed with Phonics. The main issue is attitude/behavior. Any thoughts on how to help kids with this? I tell him that I refuse to do school wit...

Re: Phonics concerns for 5 y.o.

Re: Phonics concerns for 5 y.o.

Thank you! I appreciate your input! I guess I just have to let loose a little bit and not be so concerned about staying with the pace... I guess that is the nice thing about homeschooling. I'm still learning... :)

Phonics concerns for 5 y.o.

I am doing Little Hearts with my 5 year old for Kindergarten this year. Lately he has been very bossy and not wanting to do school. He loves everything in the curriculum except for phonics. We are using Reading Made Easy and are at lesson 47. He seems to be able to do it okay, sometimes with a littl...

Re: What to do between Little Hands and Little Hearts

Thanks so much for your suggestions and encouragement! I appreciate it! I have actually heard of Before Five in a Row and we have done those already, but could definitely review them as they are all wonderful books! I have looked into the Rod and Staff books and am excited to maybe use them along wi...

What to do between Little Hands and Little Hearts

I started doing Little Hands with my 3 year old son this year and we both love it! This is my first child homeschooling so it is nice to have all the information I need right there. My son asks about doing preschool every day. He loves it so much and wants more and more! We will be finishing up with...
