A good phonics book has a lot of repetition and sentences that sometimes make sense

     To teach reading to a child you should teach phonics.   Phonics takes the guesswork out of reading. With phonics you have a way to sound out words so they sound the way we speak. If your child can speak the word

and understand the meaning then with phonics after pronouncing the written word she will know what it means and that is the advantage of phonics. 

     To teach phonics it is best to have a phonics book that contains a lot of rhyme and repetition, or you can use the Montessori way and make up words with sandpaper letters. The sandpaper letters have the advantage off adding feeling to the learning experience. 

To Homeschooling Parents And Parents of Children who are having Problems Learning to Read

Have A look At Three Free Videos About How to Teach Your Child To Read 

     Video 1: Introduction To Montessori Reading.

 Video 2: How To Make Sandpaper Letters. 

          Video 3: How To Teach Reading Using Sandpaper Letters

     As has been said many times before 'a picture tells a thousand words' and these free videos do just that. They are easier to understand as you can see how to make sandpaper letters then how to teach using them.

     A good phonics book will have lists of rhyming words like cat, mat, sat, hat, and bat. The accompanying passage will have sentences using all the rhyming words that make up a story. Even if the story doesn’t make complete sense it doesn’t matter, as you are getting your child to say similar sounding words. Anyway your child will not really understand the story, but that doesn’t matter. The main exercise of the story is to expose your child to as many rhyming words that sound the same, so your child can start to distinguish between different sounds

     When I read these rhyming stories with my kids I like to make up the main words with sandpaper letters. Then you only have to change one letter to make up a new word, Children seem to love these sandpaper letters as it gives them a break from reading all the time. And the simple action of drawing the letters prepares the child to start writing.

     For a list of phonics courses that I recommend as well as a Montessori course see our teach reading page.
