This is Ava, Isaiah and Lila doing Learn to Read by Starfall. It is an excellent beginning phonics teaching tool. All my adoptive kids including the older ones started with this program and these 3 are just doing it during quiet time after swimming. Here is a link to it and it is free http://www.starfall.com/ It is very easy to use and if the child can click the mouse it can be self learning. We are planning our next school year now....We are thinking of returning to a style we taught last in 2005- unit teaching. It is where we come up with things of interest and each week or two all of our subjects are done with that unit. It requires way more on my part to plan but it by far has been the most fun and interesting way to home school. I will share what we do and any things of interest like field trips, crafts and how we incorporate the academic subjects into the unit so stay tuned.
