Hey, guess who's reading?
You guessed it! Corinne!
Thanks to Starfall.com. I swear to God, she was only mildly interested in her letters and putting words together before I started showing her the site. I had used Starfall before for Evan, but it just didn't work for our schedule back then. But for Corinne, right now? She is INTO it. Between Starfall, Webkinz Jr. and JumpStart, she is really grasping the letter sounds and word chunks! She actually read the first 2 stories on the introduction to reading section on Starfall!
I hadn't realized before how many areas there were in the Starfall site. I do believe that this will be a good place to visit with Corinne and have Evan "help" her so that he can strengthen his reading skills. The words just don't come as easily for him as they did for Justin. But I think that by being the "teacher" for Corinne, he can benefit from the site without feeling like he's re-learning stuff from his old first grade classroom.
Oh yeah.... I forgot I had a homeschool blog!
