A good start on your child’s road to reading is with preschool phonics.

     The earliest you can get your child interested in preschool phonics the better. But starting too early is not really that beneficial. I think around three years old is a good time to start with preschool phonics. But you

should be reading to your child as often as possible from as early an age as you can. The more reading you can get in, the more words your child knows and reading is all about words. 

I like the Montessori approach where the kids are grouped into age groups of 3 to 6 year old. 

     This way the younger kids can see the older kids reading and the older kids can teach the younger kids. Also there is no pressure on the children to start to learn preschool phonics. They start when they want to start, that is the Montessori way. If you are home schooling your child or teaching them to read so it will help them in kindergarten, just go easy on the preschool phonics and don’t try to teach too much. 

You must repeat all the time as kids have trouble keeping things in their heads. 

     For preschool reading the Montessori way is with sandpaper letters and I think that way is very effective. You make up the phonic sounds with sandpaper letters and the kids trace the letters. This way the children feel the shape of the letters as well as saying the phonic sound

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.

     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.

     For young preschools words and writing mean nothing but the feel of the letter makes a big difference. So for preschool phonics feeling is better than looking at the letters. I like this Montessori course as it is actually based on what she was doing a hundred years ago.
