When Alycia and Sherilyn’s interest in flash cards were waning early this year, I found it really hard to hold their attention when I flashed the cards to them. I was practically forcing, bribing and my temper flared too. I decided the flash cards needed a respite for a few months and kept all of them.
Several days ago whilst rummaging the drawer, Alycia dug out the boxes of flash cards and asked me to read to her. I gladly read to the gals during breakfast and I also took the opportunity to teach them phonics. Alycia’s reading has improved slightly over the last few days as I have intensified the reading program with her. I’ve also resumed the Peter & Jane series books with her. Her interest in reading is still not as enthusiastic as I would want it to be but she’s definitely improving.
