children be up to grade level if they return to school?
children begin homeschooling they generally have to go back to a lower grade to
fill in the gaps. Regardless most children who have homeschooled for a year or more
using our material are found to be ahead of their peers if they return to
who begin with the phonics programme at five years old can appear to be behind
their peers for the six to twelve months since they are learning sounds and their
peers are learning sight words. However after this time it is obvious the
children who have learnt phonics are miles ahead. This is because homeschooled
children can sound words they do not know and have learnt rules to help them
spell. A child who has completed a phonics programme can always read and spell
better than a child who has learnt sight words.
