    Talking About Bad Reading Lessons…

    May 4, 2016 by Brandy Vencel

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]oday, I’m over at Teaching Reading with Bob Books talking about bad reading lessons. You know: those days when your child suddenly forgets every phonics rule you ever taught him, and you feel like a Big Failure. I think the advice there — don’t freak out — applies to a lot more than reading. All of this got me thinking about how tightly wound I was about … well … everything … when I was first starting out as a homeschool mom.

    We put so much pressure on ourselves, don’t we?

    Great Article! I really love the article you have shared. Phonics isn’t some small insignificant sub-set of reading skills – it’s the written code of our language and the associated skills of decoding for reading and encoding for spelling. It IS a sub-set of reading skills – but it is very important indeed. Children will be able to comprehend much better if they can lift the words off the page easily in the first place.
