Tag Archives: teaching reading
Most homeschooling parents I know are book lovers! We can’t imagine not reading and long for our children to enjoy the same. Truthfully, in 13 years of home education, I don’t think any ‘lesson’ has brought me greater joy than watching the light-bulbs come on with reading. One of my children picked it up so easily I couldn’t believe there were any illiterate folks in the world. The other child struggled. Years down the road, the one who struggled is a voracious reader and the other will read if there is no other option. Interestingly, the child who learned to read the words found comprehension far more complicated. This is just a brief little piece to encourage those of you in the throes of reading instruction.
