DD6 is a very good reader. I had her take Sonlights reading placement test, and they would place her in the 5th grade level. At home she is reading in the Pathway readers. I had thought they they were good practice for her, even if below her ability, but have been trying to move her through them to get to something more challenging. Currently she is a little more than half way done with the last 2nd grade reader. But, she tends to skip words. They are simple words like the, my, has, a, etc. Very rarely (if ever?) does she come to a word that she doesn't know. If she stumbles on a word, it is more because she just didn't pay enough attention to that word. Do you think she just isn't challenged enough and either has her eyes past what she is saying or just isn't giving it completely concentration since it is so easy? Should I just skip some of the next readers for a more challenging reader? If so, where should I try starting her? I think that I could easily assign her reading on her own and have her narrate it to me, but I don't want to do that if she is going to be skipping words.
Thanks for any thoughts.
