I'm having a hard time figuring out what to do for a reading program. I see lots of reviews about phonics ( we love Explode the Code, and I have used Spalding which is also great but much more intense/involved) but not ELA programs that have specific, sequential strategies and related stories. I think even if a child is a natural reader, they benefit from an interesting skill based program. Does anybody ever just buy one copy of Scholastic Literacy Place/Macmillan, etc. and do a comprehensive ( while adapted for homeschooling) program. Does anybody do Guided reading ? I want something that contains stories which get progressively more difficult but are high interest and fun. What does everybody do?
