Hello! I have a question about reading. I follow the Simply Charlotte Mason website and do Spelling Wisdom/ULW with my fourth and sixth grader(is is very behind so we are on 3rd grade spelling wisdom). We are also working on cursive.
We tried the pathways readers from the very beginning and only got to the second one. My kids hate them. I have tried and tried but to no avail.
Is there any other readers that I can use? Because the library but I don’t really feel like my kids are getting enough reading in. Is it necessary to use pathway readers? Should I make my kids do this?Karen SmithModerator
It is not necessary to use the Pathway Readers. They are just the readers that Sonya and I used with our children, so they are the ones we are familiar with. There are other readers out there that could be used instead, or you could choose to have your children read from chapter books that are at an appropriate reading and age level.retrofamParticipant
Teach a child to read with children’s books has reading lists for each level. The library has most of the books. My 2nd grader read Frog and Toad recently and loved it.
Ok thanks ladies! I appreciate tthe response. I have another question. What is the difference between daily copywork and spelling wisdom? Should I do both for my 4th grader. She does 2spelling wisdoms a week and 2 narrations written a week. Should I have he doing daily copywork too? Is that book of mottos?Karen SmithModerator
You do not have to continue with copywork once your child is doing Spelling Wisdom/prepared dictation and written narrations. Typically, a child doing prepared dictation would keep a Book of Mottoes by recording about once a week a quote, poem, etc. that interested her from her reading. A Book of Mottoes is a keepsake for the student and is not to be critiqued or graded.
Thanks so much!! This clears things up for me.
