A good phonics tale book helps when learning to read using phonics

     When teaching reading you must read books to your children and they must also read but which is the best phonics tale book to read to your child. I don’t know, but what I did was start teaching phonics using the

Montessori way with sandpaper letters. Then I started using the Scholastic Phonic Readers books. 

The Montessori approach is excellent and she does not recommend reading books until the children have a good grasp of words. 

     With the Montessori approach everything is taught phonically with tracing sandpaper letters, even the so-called sight words. So when the children start reading, they can. 

There is one problem and that is one of understanding. 

     The children have learnt the mechanics of reading and they can read nearly perfectly, but some do not understand what they are reading. You must explain all the words as you teach them so the children can put it all together in their minds. 

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.

     After the child can read words I start using the Scholastic Phonic Readers books as they are easy to understand and there is a lot of repetition. The children love these books as the story can stretch over 3 or more books, so the phonics tale carries on over several books. The characters in the story stay the same only the situation changes.

     I use this course for teaching phonics, it uses the Maria Montessori method of teaching reading and writing, and I recommend it to anyone who is teaching reading.

     For more information about the phonics products I recommend see our teach reading page.
