READING: If your child is ready for kindergarten and knows their letter names and sounds but hasn’t been through the McGuffey Primer course, please start there. It is not a full year. It’s about fifty lessons. It’s an important step in our learn to read program. If your child struggles with learning by sight words and would do better with phonics, please choose the Learn to Read course from the Reading levels and set it to Day 112.
In general, I don’t suggest choosing a higher reading level than your child’s natural grade level. While they may be excellent readers, the subjects in books for older students may not be appropriate for young readers.
