to Homeschool Reading
I have put together some mostly free resources to help teach your child to read. Of course reading resources are all around you.
The main thing with reading is to show your children that reading can be fun as well as being educational for homeschool.
Through books you can give your child the skills needed to find information, you can help your child increase their vocabulary.
No homeschool is complete without homeschool reading materials. Books bring your children greater language skills.
Make sure that you use reading activities and games as part of your child's reading experience as you homeschool.

GRADED READERS -for homeschool
McGuffey's Eclectic Primer Words of only two or three letters are used in the first lessons. Longer and more difficult ones are gradually introduced as the pupil gains aptness in the mastery of words.
A proper gradation has been carefully preserved. All new words are placed at the head of each lesson, to be learned before the lesson is read.
Their number in the early lessons is
very small, thus making the first steps easy. All words in these vocabularies are used in the text immediately following.
McGuffey's First Eclectic Reader Each lesson begins with vocabulary words, followed by the description of a
picture (if any) related to the lesson's reading exercise. The lesson then
consists of printed text for reading and sometimes script (handwriting)
for reading or copying great for homeschool learning.
