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 we would rather go straight to phonetic reading. Is that possible, or should we stick to sight reading at this age? I have had people tell me (anecdotal 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?
