I thought I’d do an update on how we are getting on with our ‘Children Learning Reading Programme’.
We are now 5 weeks into the programme and I feel it is going really well. My son (who’s 4) is now able to recognise quite a few different letters and can now read quite a few words completely on his own. (Which I think for a 4-year-old is pretty good).
We probably would have been further along with the programme if I had stuck to it religiously every day, which I admit I haven’t (life gets in the way).
You are supposed to do each lesson (which don’t take more than 5 minutes) at least twice a day, whereas we have only been doing it once a day at the moment.
Even so, I feel my son is really starting to get to grips with it now and has finally mastered the art of ‘blending’. (You can find out more about this on the website).
My daughter who’s 2 can also now recognise quite a few different letters and everywhere we go now all I hear is the two of them shouting out letters whenever they see them on signs.
We are all really enjoying spending time together learning the letters and new words and at this rate I reckon my son will be able to read by the time he goes to school in September!
I will keep you updated with our progress and I will try and post up some videos so you can see for yourselves, (that is if first I can work out how to record it and second how to put it on here!)
