Learning to read

Today I started Hooked on Phonics with my 5 yr old son, I. He knows his letters by sight, but needs to learn what sounds they make. We are starting with the kindergarten set. So far it seems pretty simple. Since he doesn't know the sounds letters make yet, the program has him listen to a CD that walks him through flash cards. The flash cards have the letter and an object that begins with that letter. They go through it several times, repeating the letters and the sounds. I was surprised that it kept his attention. He still has some work to do, but I know that the program will help a lot! I am so proud of him!

The new beginning

Well I started this blog a few years ago. A lot has changed and I thought I would start all over again. My name is Teresa and I am married with 2 young children. Isaiah is 5 1/2 and Jasper is 3 months. I am a SAHM and love it. I love to read, play wit m boys and try new products. I also love couponing and finding a good deal!

I hope, with starting this blog, I will make new friends and learn more about myself. Thanks for stopping by!
