Thrift Store Find – Hooked On Phonics SRA Reading Power
I can’t be the only one who does this? I’ll be at the local thrift store and I will see something totally cool, for next to nothing, and buy it. Even though it is not age appropriate for my child. I mean you will eventually us it right? Then usually you forget about it and find it once your child has outgrown it.
Well for once I found something I bought a few years ago BEFORE Wes has grown out of it. Actually we will get a LOT of use out of it.
These are basic on the SRA lab method that is used in many schools. Thinking back, I remember using something similar in elementary myself.
For now Wesley and I are working on two leaflets a day. But right now its fairly easy for him. Once it starts to become a little more challenging we will slow down to one story a day.
As you can see it does become more difficult. SO I can see this being a program we work on long term. I doubt by the end of the summer that we will be finishing this program, but I can really seeing us making a good dent in it.
Have you ever found any Thrift Store deal that you couldn’t turn down that your child was still not ready for?
