What ideas are you looking for to teach reading

     When teaching your children how to read I would stick to the basics and not try and bring in new any ideas for teaching reading. The tried and trusted methods of teaching reading have been already taught to many, many children so why experiment with new ideas. 

The number one idea you should be using is reading in bed as often as possible. 

     This way your children get into the habit of reading and hopefully they end up with a love of reading. With so much competition for your child’s free time they need a love of reading so they will keep reading

     Another good idea for teaching reading is phonics. Phonics has been teaching kids to read for well over a century and it is very effective. Phonics are a road map to reading, they are the code to deciphering the written word and once your children know phonics they should be able to read anything. 

I like the Montessori method of phonics but there are many good phonics programs available online and off. 

     After your children have mastered phonics they can read nearly everything but they don’t always understand what they are reading. That is where you or a good dictionary comes in. To save your sanity it is s very good idea to teach your kid’s how to use a dictionary. This way they will be asking you what this word means all the time.

     Another good idea for teaching reading is to ask your children to tell you about the story they have just finished reading. This way you will know if your kid’s reading comprehension is progressing the correct way. So the good ideas for teaching reading are reading in bed as often as possible, phonics and reading comprehension.

     For more information about phonics courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
