As I am currently trying to teach our 1st grader and our kindergartener phonics/how to read, I find it extremely frustrating that all of their readers have illustrations. What I'm finding is that my children are trying to read me the story from the pictures rather than from the words. Grrrr. As an experiment, I re-wrote a reader onto a blank piece of paper and had them read through it... and it worked tremendously!!! I just don't want to keep on doing that! Surely there have to be some pictureless readers out there that I can use for our children. Do you ladies know of any?
