My grandson who I am helping to learn to read when he comes to visit is 41/2. I homeschooled his mom. His auditory skills are extremely good and so therefore knows long words and the meaning of them well. He doesn’t know his letters or sounds of them yet. He is not as visual and so he will need to learn his sight words through auditory means…through reading.
The programs I am looking at are
A Gentle Feast
Delightful Reading
All About Reading which is not Charlotte mason.
Thank you so much

I’m only familiar with All About Reading. It is such a good program. Nice for all types of learners. The only other curriculum I have used for reading is The Good and the Beautiful, which certainly has a Charlotte Mason feel to it. Great price point and a solid program. Both programs are easy to teach and easy to learn. Fun as well! Good luck!
