The Reading Lesson was written by Charan Langton and Michael Levin, M.D.
It’s a phonetic reading program that helps your child become a confident reader over the course of 20 lessons.
Those 20 lessons can be broken up (and I highly suggest it if you have really little ones).
Keeping it a manageable pace for our daughter, we typically do about 2-3 pages/day.
You can buy the book separate or you can get it as a set with the The Reading Lesson with Giggle Bunny CD-ROM.
The two main results I was looking for with this curriculum were:
teaching my daughter reading fundamentals
have reading time be fun
The Reading Lesson delivers on both.
My Thoughts on The Reading Lesson
As a parent, what I appreciate about The Reading Lesson is how easy it is teach using it.
There’s introductory material at the beginning that goes over the design and format of the curriculum and book.
It also gives guidance on how to approach lessons and suggestions on keeping interest.
Each lesson begins with a page of instruction, which made it easy for me to do a lesson with my daughter when she was engaged and excited. I had her set up our reading space while I took a minute to review
