Teaching reading in the 21st century is all about computers or is it

     The tried and tested systems for teaching reading are over 100 years old and are still popular and in use in the 21st century. Even though the computer and the internet are modern inventions not everybody is

hooked up to the www. And living in front of a computer does not appeal to everybody so we sometimes have to resort to tried and trusted methods in use before the computer age. 

There are a number of very good computer phonics programs available over the internet and I do recommend Click n Read Phonics as it has already proven itself. 

     If you want to give your kids a head start into the 21st century you should do something your grandmother did. And that is read aloud in bed. You can't really do that with a computer. 

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.

     When you start your children off on the road to reading they are too young to be on a computer. So you have to look at reading systems that are older that the 21st century. 

     I prefer phonics and of the phonics programs available I like the Montessori method with its sandpaper letters

     Here you make up the word or phonic sound in sandpaper letters and let your child trace the sandpaper letter and say the word. A very simple system but learning reading takes time so you have to keep at it. Also one of the joys of this system is it also teaches your child to write. When your child is tracing the letters she is preparing herself to start writing and you cant do that on a computer.

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