We are still using PAL, and we really like it, but I must admit that it is slow going.
Pal teaches things really fast. It is too fast for my son.
We are not giving up on it though, we are just going at it a little slower.
One thing I have done is take a break from the lessons to practice what we have learned so far, so that he really knows and understand what he is learning.
We are using the folder games, but I also made up two more games of my own.
I took all the "helpers" that he is learning, and made a match game out of them.
I also made a match game out of the color sight words he is learning.
This is really helping.
Something else that I am doing right now is focusing more on the I See Sam Readers.
This is much easier for him right now.
So we are going to do more of the I See Sam readers, and practice what we have learned in PAL so far, and then take each PAL lesson slowly.
It might take us a lot longer to get through the lessons, but that is OK.
If you are using PAL, and it is going a little too fast for you, just remember that it is OK to slow down,and tailor it to your child.
For those of you who use pal, how is it going for you?
