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 school.
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.
