My 4 year old has started reading. He taught himself, just like my 9 year old did years ago. They are sight readers, look at a word, ask what it is, and remember it. Period. We have played with various phonics computer games, but both kids taught themselves to read before I sat down to really teach phonics. So, it sounds great, BUT- there are times when you need to be able to sound out a new word- the first time you see some weird dinosaur name for example. I would love to find a game or program focused on the 4 year old that I can coach my 9 year old to do with him to help them both learn phonics better. And at least if I start now, maybe the 2 year old will learn phonics anyway. Suggestions?
