Default Re: Learning to Read Resources -- Share what you've used.

My eldest was a spontaneous reader, starting 2 weeks before her 4th birthday. That was weird, to say the least! She's also an intuitive speller. Never been taught spelling, spells perfectly.


My second child has a very interesting story about learning to read. When he was 6, he said he wanted to learn to read. So I helped with with Bob Books. After about 5 of them (which took maybe 2 days, they're VERY short and there are about 100 books total) he said he was done. Okay.

I didn't teach him anymore and he didn't read any other books. Then, about 12 months later, he just picked up chapter books and started reading. He's an excellent reader and an intuitive speller. He's never needed any other instruction in reading and has never been taught to spell.

My next two were much more traditional and learned to read with Bob Books and progressed through simple picture books after that. My 3rd child needs a lot of help with spelling. She's got different language wiring than the rest of us.

What I love about Bob Books is that they are so funny!
