I thought maybe those of you that homeschool could help me out a bit here . . .
My DS, currently in Kindergarten, has dealt with some delays, including a quite severe speech delay that requires ongoing therapy. That speech delay is also impacting his learning abilities, specifically in reading (and writing but that's an issue with different challenges, for a different post!).
He's making progress and we have decided to definitely move him forward to 1st grade but I think we need to do more with him at home. We do read with him a lot already and he brings leveled readers home as part of a school reading program. It's going well but I'd like to work with him myself with additional leveled readers and or other materials in an effort to help him catch up a bit and move forward.
I'm just not sure where or what to look for. I've found, but haven't bought, sets of leveled readers and I have a couple of sight word reader sets already. They are good but I guess I'm looking for something more structured than just reading together. He's becoming resistant at times, I think it feels too much like a drill or work or whatever for him.
So if any of you have suggestions for curriculum or books or workbooks or other materials that might be helpful (and don't cost a fortune of course!!) I'd be very grateful. I think I just need a new approach. I have looked into reading programs held at tutoring places but they don't seem to be the right fit for what I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance!
