Use Reading With Pictures For Younger Children

     After the kid gets bored or loses concentration it is time to give up, and come back at a later time. If they are not interested you could be wasting your time. 

     Also, sometimes it can take a long time perhaps 5, 10 or even 15 minutes before the kid starts to show an interest in what you are reading, so
hang in there because the kid will come around. It takes a bit longer for them to unwind and change to a new topic, but then they will be alright for hopefully a good half hour or so. 

     If the kids are under 5 and their vocabulary is not very large, use reading with pictures with the word printed on the paper, then they can learn the word and how to say it.


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 like printing out the coloring pages, the kid likes, from the internet. I write on the picture what it is, like -cat- or -bird- or whatever. Then I get the kid to copy the letters to make the word then we say the word together. 

I phonically say each letter, so the kid gets a grasp of what the letters and the word sounds like. 

     Also we are back to repeat, repeat and repeat again. As long as the kid writes the words I will keep printing out new pages and new words to color in.

     I usually forget about teaching the alphabet, as the individual sound of the letters does not always match the way it is spoken. But I do like phonics

     If the kid can sound out the word correctly, then if they know what the spoken word is they know what the written word is. And that is the advantage of phonics

     But I don’t go overboard on phonics. I sound out the words, and sometimes I will put a pencil stroke between the syllables, so the kids can figure out that that combination of letters, sounds like what it said. 

     Phonics helps to decipher a word so the kid can say it. Then once they hear it they should know the meaning. Phonics ties the language together so the sound of the words matches what is written.                 

     To learn more about the phonics reading courses I recommend see our teach reading page.
