I'm in search of a reading curriculum for my 5 year old DD. A year ago I tried "just teaching her" using a variety of mostly free resources. It quickly became a power struggle, and we were both miserable. I took a giant step back. DD has now told me that she would like to start working on learning to read. She does not know her letters and their sounds consistently. She ADORES books and spends hours pouring over picture books alone. We go to the library weekly, which she LOVES. I have no doubt that once she starts reading, she will be a reader.
I would like to purchase a step by step reading curriculum with structured lessons, materials, and such. I'd like a secular, not at all computer/electronic based program (she's TV/screen free for now). I want it to be engaging and interactive with some games. I want to look forward to doing it with her, and I want her to look forward to it too. FWIW, we're using Right Start Math, which we really like. We're also using Kumon workbooks to practice fine motor skills which she is enjoying a surprising amount.
What would you recommend?
