A good reason NOT to teach your child to read

Is that they can then read the words written in bathroom stalls. Maybe limiting them to a preset list of sight words is the correct thing- hearing your five your old sounding out delightful messages is overrated!

On more positive news, we did the first lesson in McGuffey's Eclectic Speller. I've had it since I bought all of the readers, but never used it. I like the layout of the lists, but I need to find a way to think up some exercises myself.

Otherwise, all is good!
