My 3yr old has been asking us to teach her how to read. She can recognize a decent amount of the alphabet, and picks stuff up pretty quickly (when she wants to.)
We have thought about picking some basic words and teaching sight reading, but I would rather go right for phonetic reading. Is that possible, or should we stick to sight reading at this age? I have had people tell me (anecdotally at best) that it is a little more difficult for a kid to go from sight reading to phonetic. Is this true? Is there any good material to help out?
