More exuberant praise for Hooked on Phonics to follow. ;)
Sweet Pea is now reading the included chapter books! She's on her third. The title is Picnic at Black Rock and it comes in at 64 pages and 6 chapters.
She already knows all the sight words for the K level and both parts of the 1st grade level, so once she's through the workbook and the included stories we'll be all set to begin 2nd grade phonics!
We've moved through short CVC words to consonant combination beginning and ending words. Next up is vowel combinations. We'll be through the simple digraphs then!
Where we head after that I don't know. But I'm excited to see. It's amazing to me that less then six months ago Sweet Pea couldn't sound out "cat" and now she's reading books. :)
