I am going to brag about my kiddo for a minute. For my first time readers, my son is 10 years old and is a struggling reader. He was part of an e-school last year, which he was in 2nd grade. I felt that he wouldn't be ready for the required state test they have to take in 3rd grade and I felt that I would be able to help him learn without feeling pressure to "hurry" and catch up. So for this school year I am traditionally homeschooling him and will do that through at least 5th grade. After that I will reevaluate to see if I am going to enroll him back in the online school for middle school and high school or keep going with the homeschooling.
So the bragging part. My son has improved so much in a short time with his reading. Like with normal homeschooling, a child will not be at the same levels in every subject, like for example, I started him out on level one with a language arts curriculum, we just started level two, which we will continue throughout the summer, but in math we are starting multiplication, which is about 3rd grade!
Okay bragging over! So now to the fun part. Here is a free story that I created. You can print it here. Either you read or have your child read the story, highlight all the words that start with the
-un prefix and discuss what each word means. For an example, highlight the word unwell, you would have your child tell you that unwell means not well.
