May the force be with your literacy

During quiet time today, I was teaching Squdge lesson 4 of Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. Since the twins will be 5 in just three months, I figured now was a good time to start to learn to read.

At the end of each lesson, they practice writing a couple letters.  It's a nice gentle way to ease them into handwriting along with practicing the sounds they learn to read.

Squdge's letters and handwriting skills are atrocious.  I usually have to hold his hand with my hand and guide him through.  (Tater is this way too.)

Today he made a HUGE "S" after I modeled a couple lowercase letters for him.

I said, "Squdge, I don't want you to make a giant one.  Make a little one like mine."

He said, "I'm making a force field for them!"

I taught all four of my kids with "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons." It's a great tool. Some took to it better than others, of course. Now some of my grandchildren are learning that way too.
