Using Life of Fred Beginning Readers in Your Homeschool
It’s no secret that we enjoy a healthy dose of Life of Fred around here! We were very excited to find out that Educents is now offering a new Life of Fred Beginner Reading Series. Fred is a fun 4 year old boy who has stolen our hearts. We’ve enjoyed Fred’s various adventures in math. Now we’ve added Fred and his doll Kingie to our reading adventures!
Fred’s beginning reader tales are enjoyed at our breakfast table (and if you see the sippy cup by Naomi’s hand, just know that belongs to her little sister, ha!).
Our younger boys enjoy the easy to understand pictures and character sketches throughout the Life of Fred beginning reader books. Fred is certainly silly, yet full of engaging learning. We received the Life of Fred Beginning Readers Set #2 and Life of Fred Beginning Readers Set #3 from our friends at Educents. We’re so thankful we’ve been able to experience these books.

My Current Favorite Way to Use Life of Fred Beginning Readers
My younger boys, ages 4 and 6, enjoy their current reading program and are learning from it immensely. However as their reading skills are growing I know they’ll enjoy reading these Life of Fred Beginning Readers on their own. My 6 year old, Gabriel, can sound out many of the words when he picks up a Life of Fred reader on his own. To encourage the reading strengths of both boys I’ve been adding these Life of Fred Beginning Readers into our days as homeschool and family read alouds. At just 32-pages per book, we’ve read a Life of Fred Beginning Reader before bed over the weeks of our Christmas break. Both boys laughed out loud at Fred’s quirky adventures while learning interesting facts along the way. They always enjoy mommy reading to them, and they love that they can transition into reading these books on their own!
The Life of Fred Beginning Readers Set has been enjoyed by my 9-year old daughter who reads the books to her siblings and can be found giggling mid-story as she reads them to herself. The entire LOF set can be cherished by a wide age-range in a growing homeschool family.
