                                                                          printable phonics worksheets

For an easy start to teaching your child to read you should download some printable phonics worksheets

     There is an endless array of phonics teaching material on line but for printable phonics worksheets I go to Tamparead.com. These pages are free and in my humble opinion they are an excellent source of phonics worksheets, and

there are plenty of them. 

     The only problem I could find is they are in color and that is because my printer ran out of color ink. But that is a minor problem they print out OK in black and white. 

I like to use the printable phonics worksheets in connection with other forms of teaching. 

     I think just using worksheets is not enough, so I add Montessori sandpaper letters to the learning pot. I make up the word or the phonic sound from the printable phonic worksheet and then I get the child to trace the sandpaper letters while saying the phonic sounds. This way the child is saying the phonic sound as well as writing it. Then she will say the completed word after she has filled in the worksheet. 

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.

     I do one square from the worksheet at a time so I can use the sandpaper letters. If the child is doing all the squares by herself she might get bored, as there are 20 squares on each page. This way I can keep track of what my child is learning and help her if she gets stuck. 

     When starting out on the road to reading I always use the sandpaper letters as they are a tremendous help and the children like the feel of the sandpaper as they trace the letters. 

     For more information about the phonics programs I recommend including a Montessori program with sandpaper templates and how to make them see our teach reading page.
