Re: Teaching your kids to read

My 5 year old daughter picked up letter sounds on her own...from starfall and other ipad games. DH and I read to her a lot starting when she was about 4 months old but I never formally taught her any sounds.

I started teaching her how to read in November just before she turned 5. It was something I didn't want to push on her since she won't start Kindergarten until next year (she missed the cut-off for this year, and she will be going to public school because DH will be her teacher). But she was ready to learn so I bought The Reading Lesson and some Bob Books. It's only been 3 months, and she can now read 1st grade level books.
