  1. Thank you so much! We just recently started homeschooling our three boys ages 13, 7, and 5. I have been so overwhelmed with the kindergartner, and this information helps greatly. Thanks again and G-d Bless!

  2. Hi Kim! Thanks for the tips! I’m considering homeschooling my 5 year old in Kindergarten this coming year and I’m eager to look into many of the resources you mentioned. I do have one concern though, and that is this: What can a mother do when a child just seems to hate reading and writing? I’m a former school teacher myself and I’ve been reading to my son from infancy but he shows very little interest in sitting and looking at or reading books–with or without me. While he might sit and listen to short, humorous, or whimsical books, he often refuses to answer direct questions about any reading. He enjoys sensory activities, but he dislikes writing to the extent that even sensory based writing activities (like tracing in sand, rice, etc) are a chore he’d rather not do… For several years I’ve watched and waited for his attitude to shift–trying not to push him too early into reading and writing–but now he’s at an age where I don’t really have a choice. Frankly I’m at a loss as to how to build and encourage an interest in and love of reading and written language (though his verbal communication skills are excellent for his age and he’s also very good at telling stories and frequently tries to make up jokes). Do you have any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!

  3. Hi! I was wondering does the All about spelling teach all the phonic stuff that goes with along with learning to read? Like the special sounds and blends in phonics.

    1. Yes, it does have a section in each lesson teaching the phonics sounds and various phonograms.
