which one would you pick?

Dd1 has worked through her perfectionistic phase of learning to read. She's decoding some, enjoying books throughly.

So, given where we are now, if she still wants a structured reading program....which one would you suggest? Any modifications you feel like are necessary?

I recommend The Ordinary Parents' Guide to Teaching Reading. I'd skip the beginning lessons about letter sounds.

We use Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. Kyllian just goes through the bold sounds, words and sentences. We do not do the scripted parts. When we come to a new sound I tell him what it is and I listen to make sure what he is reading is correct. Other than that he selfs direct the frequency and the duration of each "lesson"

I am using the Reading Reflex and it is going well.

But there seems so much to learn, I wonder if she will ever learn it all. Makes me realise just how complex the whole thing is.

I love the program though with its varied things to do- mapping (writing- which I do fer here) using letter tiles (paper cut outs) using a white board, and reading out things.

with ds, it all just "clicked" at about age 8 and he jumped 3 or 4 grade levels in one month.

I liked reading reflex, too
another I like especially for a kid who seems to get the basics but is not advancing is "Teach a child to read with children's books" there is a structured lesson plan laid out, but you are using "real books" for the lessons.

The Reading Lesson. I bought it for my now-five year old, who uses it sporadically as the muse strikes her, and I also used it with my 12 year old, who was learning English. I have found it useful for both of them, and both of them have liked it.

Namaste!
