Several months ago we received a note from a homeschool mom who was teaching her son how to read using Charlotte Mason’s method. (If you’re just joining this discussion, you can read our articles about Charlotte’s method of teaching reading.)
This mom had pulled together some wonderfully rich reading selections and seemed to have a solid grasp of how Charlotte taught reading. We so enjoyed reading through her lesson plans, nodding our heads at her helpful ideas, and smiling at her inventive extra sentences!
And now we are excited to make them all available to you as a ready-to-use kit. Announcing the Delightful Reading Kit by Lanaya Gore! The alphabet fun ideas, the beginning word-building combinations, the sight-word lesson plans and word-building lesson plans, the extra sentences, the child’s own word notebook, the rich reading selections, the word and letter tiles—they’re all there! We’ve even included bags and labels to help you keep your letter tiles and word tiles organized.
Best of all, you can rest assured that your child will be learning the 100 Most Commonly Used words (plus hundreds more) as he works his way through a Robert Louis Stevenson poem, an Aesop fable, a Scripture passage, and a sweet Letter to My Friends. All in all, he will learn more than 900 words through these wonderful selections and their short, interesting lessons.
Maybe you are just getting started with a little one who wants to learn how to read. Or perhaps you’ve done some reading lessons with your child, but you’ve both hit a wall and need a little boost to get going again. The Delightful Reading Kit works wonderfully for beginners who are new to reading, for hesitant readers who need a little more practice and confidence with a book, or for any child in between.
Get all the details and take a look at sample pages on our website. The complete Delightful Reading Kit is available at a special introductory price through February 10, 2011.
