Thing 1 finished the last lesson in her McGuffey Primer last week. Now, we get to start reading stories! She's already "team reading" with me, and read Go, Dog, Go! on her own a few weeks ago. Not bad for a newly-minted five-year-old who never set foot in school.
I'm debating whether to use the First Reader or not. We'll see how it goes after the storybook reader. If she's comfortable reading books, then I'll stop and just let her practice out of regular books. If not, it's back to the more formal structure of McGuffey's.
