So DS2 will be K age this year. He's been with us for 8 months now, and has picked up an astounding amount of English. He isn't really ready for traditional kindergarden subjects quite yet. But I'm thinking ahead, trying to figure out what would be a good fit for him in the coming year.

Our family does relaxed homeschooling, and we do use curriculums and some workbooks for some subjects. With my other children I've used ETC for phonics (and handwriting
), and it's worked really well. But I don't see ETC being a good fit for DS. There are so many pages where children are expected to see a picture, name/identify the picture, then figure out the sounds based on the name of the picture. I just don't think DS has the knowledge to identify many of the pictures.

So I guess what I'm looking for is a slow-moving, gentle phonics program that doesn't require the child to identify the names of lots of different objects. Any suggestions?
