Almost A Reader!

I don't believe in pushing.   I know it's common for people to think that all 5 year olds (or most) are readers.  I happen to know that it takes many kids much longer to read-try 8, 9 or even 10 years old.  I know that Cade will read when he is ready.

He is so close......so very close to being a reader!  This is so exciting to me.  There is nothing like teaching your child to read.  It's such a huge step.

I have tried three different programs with Cade, and each time, he would stall out.  He was at the point of giving up, saying he didn't want to read. 

Then we found Time4Learning.  In just a couple of months, Cade has learned so much and will soon be a READER!  Just today he read most of an I CAN READ story during his Language Arts lessons. *Proud Mom Moment...

The phonics lessons on T4L are great.  They are animated-entertaining, but not babyish.  The lessons are fun and challenging. 

T4L is a great tool for the homeschooler, no matter what your style is.  I could see this easily fitting into the schedule of a textbook user, an eclectic, or even an unschooler.

I love the fact that I can choose the level for each child.  I started Cade with Kindergarten, due to issues with immaturity.  He just flew through those lessons and has now been moved up into the first grade level. 

And Science!  Since moving Cade up a level, he now has access to Science lessons.  He loves Science!

You can go here to check out T4L's scope and sequence.

Don't take my word for it!  Look around, try the sample lessons and see for yourself.
