Hi! I'm new here. I'm currently in the middle of homeschooling my ds who is in kindergarten and my dd who is in preschool. My ds has been very easy to homeschool so far because he enjoys book work, doesn't frustrate easily and picks things up quickly. We use math-u-see, horizons phonics and sonlight core A. He loves all of it. My dd is so different that I'm lost. She is extremely smart and artistic. She has a completely different learning style, though, and I'm not sure the best way to teach her. We have gone over her letters and sounds since before she was 2 (just casually throughout the day like I did with ds) and she STILL at 4 1/2 doesn't seem to know them. (Or she will know them one day and not the next). She frustrates very easily and doesn't do well with bookwork. She seems to like it until she doesn't know something and then she completely shuts down and cries and I immediately end the session and send her to play. Because of all this, we have really just backed off of schooling altogether and I'm just casually talking about letters and their sounds as she plays throughout the day. As soon as we get serious and sit down to "do school" she cant take it and she shuts down. (We have been doing confessionsofahomeschooler k4 curriculum). She does all of our sonlight reading with us and loves it. She has a long attention span. She can sit and do an art project for an hour without an issue. Sorry for all the background info, but with all that said, I need help on where to go from here. I can't see her doing horizons phonics and I want her to LOVE school, not hate it. I plan on her doing sonlight with ds and I again next year as well as trying math u see to see how it goes. But I need a phonics program that would work for her learning style. Does anyone else have a kid like her and have you found a phonics program that works?
