Overall I really like my boys stepmom but I'm confused on this.
My second grader isn't a strong reader but he keeps moving along. I have him read 2 books from our library's beginning reader section. They have this divided into two parts, basically easy and hard. I'm now getting him books that are the hardest of the easy, make sense?
Stepmom strongly feels that he needs to be reading books only out of the harder section and not be able to check out from the easy half. My problem s he stumbles a ton through these books. I would rather have him read with confidence.
He and I are also working through hooked on phonics.
Thoughts? Advice on what I should do different or what I should tell stepmom?
