To teach your children to read you will need to follow some type of phonics lessons

     It is easier to teach phonics reading when you are following a structured program of phonics lessons. There are many programs available in the bookshops and on the internet. Some are tightly structured so you follow

the phonics lessons from beginning to end. Other phonics programs are loosely structured and you can add the words you want to teach. 

These programs teach you how to teach phonics lessons as opposed to you rigidly following the program. 

     The type you want depends on your situation. If you are supplementing schoolwork or another reading program, you want loosely structured phonics lessons that can be adapted to other programs. For situations like this I use a Montessori program because with the sandpaper letters you can make up whatever word you want. And the program basically teaches you how to teach, not what to teach. 

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.

     It can also be used with other programs like synthetic phonics. All you have to do is make up the phonic sounds in the sandpaper letters and get your child to trace the sandpaper letters

     I like this type of program as it can be adapted easily to what your child is learning at school. Also it has another hidden advantage and that is, when you child is tracing the letters she is actually learning to write, so writing comes more naturally. 

     If your situation requires a more structured program there are many to choose from and I recommend the phonics programs we mentioned on our Teach Reading page. 

     Also if you like following a book there are many good phonics teaching books so have a look at our Books and Toys page.

Thank you for your time
