Teaching your toddler to read
Like this post?
I am homeschooling my pre-schooler We are working on reading/pre-reading and basic math skills. My question is how much is teaching necessary and what methods do people prefer. I had a friend kind of chew me out because she said that "teaching" them would screw them up but then she suggested doing a bunch of things I already was doing that qualified as teaching.
We do one letter a week (She thought that was too artificial a method). We do art with that letter, writing, add words with that letter to our flashcards, do activities based on stuff that begins with that letter.
What are other people doing to facilitate reading/prereading?
