New Year

I wanted to talk about a reading book that has helped us very much. As Caleb was learning to read he was learning to talk. Caleb had problems with sh, ch, etc. Certain blends were impossible for Caleb. Sh and Ch were painful for him to learn. Even now if he gets tired it comes out wrong. I bought hooked on phonics K and first grade. It comes with a cd that you play along with a workbook. It goes over these sounds. The cd will say sh and the sound several times. Then It has a few pages of words that go with the sound. For example "Sh" has a few pages with words like ship. dish, wish, etc.... We went over sh for several months. I don't think I could have made it without the Hooked on phonics cd. We would listen to it in the car. Wonderful product. It helps with reading. But for me it helped us with speech. This is a great product to use at home with your kids as well as homework from your speech therapist.
