With many children to homeschool I found these series of Explode the Code a wonderful way to to teach phonics in a relaxed way. After the child knows his letters and sounds, and has learned to blend simple three letter short voweled words, then the child can work four pages per day on his own. I like the child to bring the work to me so I can check it and sign "Mom". Its a good idea to do the 1/2 books for extra practice. This works well for children with a bit of dyslexia, since he is working on his own, he must work it out with no one in the way. Someone "teaching" demands, "What does this say? What is this sound? Which further confuses things. This way the child can look at the picture and have to spell it out on his own sequentially. I also recommend IEW for learning composition, Singapore Math, and Saxon. All easy to use, all very effective, all no nonsense programs.
