Can you suggest a homeschool phonics program?

Dear Let's Go Learn, I am home schooling my 2 daughters (aged 4 and 51/2). i am looking for a good reading program. What can you suggest? Thank you for your help.

Hello, Thanks for your email. In my opinion, a phonics program is a good place to start but I would suggest including some sight word memorization, spelling and a bit of contextual reading practice to any phonics program. Reading is made up of three basic skills, 1) the ability to sound out words, 2) the ability to memorize words, and 3) the ability to use contextual clues. Phonics programs sometimes only concentrate on the first thing.
