that's it really. i can make it up as i go along but if there's a great book out there that would give me an idea how to approach it, step by step, that would be helpful.

I made flash cards which really worked for both mine and tried to do 10 words a week. Made it into a game by letting them pick the words.the Biff and Chip books are brilliant too.

any book with simple words and lots of pictures. mine are into Night Garden, so i read through pointing to the words and stop for them to say the words they know - a larger number each time....

some of the bookstart books (one ted falls out of bed, don't wake the baby, etc etc)

phonics approaches good too. you can get alphablocks on youtube, and fun with phonics....
