Book 1- The world comes to America

What does every homeschooled child need to be taught? How to read of course! Can you do it for free? You bet you can! There are many options out there, even full phonics curricula for free! Yes, 100% totally free!
Some children will learn to read on their own, others will need lots of instruction, some will do best with books, others with interactive websites, other will learn to read by learning to spell; so I've included more than just standard textbook approach here. I am a firm believer in teaching Phonics, some of the sites may also incorporate the use of sight words as well.
Here are 20 ways to teach your child phonics for free!
Starfall.com offers a wonderful interactive approach to learning to read and it's free.
ABC Fast Phonics is a great supplement to any phonics curriculum.
The Phonics Page offers free videos for phonics. These might be a bit long for younger students, but they are a great tool we use in our own homeschool. If you use this DonPotter.net has some great downloads to go with it. By Lesson 22 your child will be able to read the book of Romans from the Bible.
