They Laughed When My Daughter Opened Her Book

 But When She Started To Read 

They Were Amazed She Could Read So Well At Such A Young Age.

Teach Your Children To Read And Write Using A Time-Tested Reading Method That Has Been Teaching Children For Over One Hundred Years

     So in my quest to help struggling readers get up to speed in reading I turned to a system that has been successfully teaching children to read for a 100 years. This teaching method has always been around but it never really took off in mainstream schools. It is a hands-on approach to teaching reading. You, the parent, have to be there to help teach your child.

     It is not a teaching system where you sit your child in front of the TV or computer and leave them to it. No, with this system you have to be there, making up the phonic sounds and words your child is learning.  Then helping your child trace the sandpaper letters the same way you would write the letter. And while doing this, your child has to say the phonic sound.

     I’m talking about the Maria Montessori method of teaching reading and writing using phonics sounds and sandpaper letters.  

Check Out This Video And Find Out How Easy It Is To Teach Using Sandpaper Letters

     This video is about how to teach using sandpaper letters. Teaching with sandpaper letters is not very difficult and you can teach the words your child is learning at school. It is a hands-on approach meaning you have to be there to make up the words and show your children the correct way to trace the letters.

  This Manual Is Just About Teaching Your Children To Read And Write Using Sandpaper Letters  

  • How a 100 year reading and writing system can be used to teach children today
  • Children love to show other children what they know so let them teach each other
  • How Maria Montessori combines teaching reading and writing together
  • Controlled scribbling can prepare your child to write
  • How you can turn 26 letters into 44 different sounds
  • Phonics and more phonics but how easy are they to learn
  • What has tracing sandpaper letters got to do with the brain
  • How a bunch of cut out letters can help your child to read and write
  • Reading can take longer to learn that writing
  • Your children should start to write by themselves

Then you will be guided through a series of lesson plans showing you how to make sandpaper letters and then how to use them. After you are comfortable with the lesson plans you are introduced to ‘The Four-Step Process’ that you can use to teach your children any words they need to know from what they are learning at school.

    And too top it all off, there is a list of helpful hints that will make teaching your children to read a lot easier. These ‘21 Helpful Hints’ are taken from my 15 years of teaching in front of a classroom and include:

  • How long time to spend teaching your child to read each day
  • What are the best books to read
  • Repeat, repeat and repeat some more
  • The mysterious Mozart effect
  • Superlearning and Accelerated Learning
  • Reading aloud is one of the best ways to teach reading
  • The three times reading method or the ‘To, With, By’ method
  • What not to do

    They are just little things you can do to make teaching reading more enjoyable for you and your child.

     Also there is a downloadable section that you can print off from the internet. Here you have phonic charts and phonic lists as well as templates for the letters and also word lists. The letters are in cursive not in block so you can teach your children to write beautiful hand written words and sentences.

     The idea behind “Reading Student Struggling Student” is to get your child to read and we will do whatever it takes to get your child to read.
