    I hope I didn't offend, we had issues with DS teacher because he'd learnt to read using phonics and it really bugged her and whilst his intonation did stink his comprehension was better than she would let on - she was more p!ssed at how he'd spell the words out and used to tell me he needed to learn not to use his phonics background.

    Oh seriously, we had three parents in this morning asking for harder readers! So not offensive...

    No, absolutely not offended. It's always hard to suggest tone in written text!

    I understood what you were saying and it was a very valid point that you made. If he was put up too many levels then he would experience that problem exactly as the kids spend all their time working out the words or have no understanding of what the words mean to be able to make sense of the text.

    I used a reader from the library with him tonight as he needs to start reading again due to nothing coming home from school. He had difficulty with about 3 words and sounded out a couple of others. One word was the word 'conjure' so we talked about it's meaning. If I had to say where his reading sat in relation to the level of the book I would say it was more at his instructional level, not his homereading level.

    What's wrong with using phonics to work out an unknown word? Isn't that what we do even as adults? I hope you had a different teacher the next year.

    Oh good. I haven't been on this side of the fence before and didn't want to be pushy!

    As a prep teacher I encourage them to use phonics... That's how we teach them to read... :-/
