GOAT #25: Reading Readiness

GOAT #25: Reading Readiness

Feeling pressure for your child to read by a certain age? It may surprise you to know that most children read by the age of 7.  Some aren't even interested before then!  Regardless, it is not a reflection of your competency as a homeschooler.

In today's episode, Erin and Amanda talk about reading readiness and draw from their experiences with their different readers to help homeschooling parents to relax about reading and encourage families to approach learning to read as a skill that your child will learn, but on their timetable.
