When you are teaching reading in kindergarten

you need to incorporate play into your lessons

     Kindergarten kids love to play so when you are teaching reading in kindergarten give them something to play with. One thing you must realize is: in kindergarten-aged kids nearly everything

you teach them including reading will go in one ear and out the other. 

     But if you keep repeating it, it might just sink in. If you are thinking you are wasting your time, don’t worry the kids love learning to read even though it seems they don’t learn very much. 

When teaching reading in kindergarten I use flash cards with pictures and words and the kids forget them as fast as I show them. 

     But if I keep repeating them over time some kids will remember them. I like the Montessori teaching reading approach for kindergarten with sandpaper letters and mixed age classrooms. 

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.

     With the sandpaper letters, I make up the word using the sandpaper letters and then get the kids to trace the word while slowly saying it. Hopefully this way it will sink in but not always. 

The key to success is repeat, repeat and repeat again. 

     When teaching beginner reading you will find some kindergarten kids pick up the words very fast and remember them while most will not. To test the kids just write the word on the blackboard and see how many can read it. Usually not to many, but don’t worry as long as the kindergarten kids are having fun while you are teaching reading the they will love the class. If you are using the Montessori way with the mixed age class then the older kids can teach the younger ones and some kids love teaching.

     For more information about reading courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
