An Update on Learning to Read

I'm very pleased with the progress Gentry's made in reading so far this year.  Last school year ended well, with much emphasis on three letter words, and this year we've been enjoying Rod & Staff's reader series "We Learn About God."  Some of the words he's learned have been rather difficult, such as "everything" and "said" and "light," and he's been a real soldier, learning them all.  We're also still progressing through Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.

And yes, we "do" homeschool at the formal dining table, with the table pad in place to protect my tabletop... lol :)

  1. That is great. I am a little nervous about teaching my own daughter how to read one day. She is almost 3 and we have been doing preschool right now. :)


  2. Please consider submitting something about homeschooling to the Carnival of Homeschooling. If you are interested, here are the instructions.

    If this week is bad for you, you are always welcome to submit to future carnivals.

    If a "blog carnival" is a new term, this might help.

    Here is the archive of previous carnivals

    Participating in a blog carnvial is a good way to get more exposure for your blog.

    Thank you for your consideration.


I truly enjoy reading your comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts; you've all helped to create a wonderful little community here at Like a Bubbling Brook.

Please remember the old adage "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." While I love to hear from you, comments encouraging division and condemnation will not be published - rather, they will be promptly deleted.

I'm looking forward to reading what you have to say! I wish we could chat over coffee or tea one day ~
