Wanda Sanseri’s curriculum has been such a life saver.
As I’ve been working through the phonograms with D1, and started him in Spelling List A, I am once again struck by how EASILY my children have all picked up reading. I’ve used this curriculum for 9 years, and it has never disappointed me.
My high-functioning Autism Spectrum son is writing and spelling and even READING simple words now because of this wonderful method. This is something we were told he probably would never be able to do.
I’m reminded of how good God is in giving me the desire to continue to teach my children.
It’s funny because it seems like so long ago that I last taught a child to read (my next youngest is almost 12 now). I look back on ‘those days’ of teaching three kids (K, 2nd & 3rd) the phonograms, and going through three spelling lists.
It was crazy! We spent such a LONG time each day doing spelling! But I loved it. I love seeing the light come on when they look at a word and can sound it out and make it actually SOUND like a word and not pieces of sounds. It’s just so COOL to be able to do that. I’m so thankful that I have the opportunity to do this again.
