Flash Cards Again

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.
