When you start to teach your child to read you need to learn how to teach phonics

     Phonics are very easy to learn, they are nothing to be intimidated about. We use phonic sounds every time we speak. When teaching phonics we have to match the phonic sound we say with the written phonic sound.

It is that simple. 

     When you are learning how to teach phonics you will need a phonic chart so you can work out the phonic written sounds and how to say them. If you are new to phonics and what to teach your children I recommend this Montessori program as it explains how to turn phonics into words. Montessori teaching has been around for over a 100 years so it has passed the test of time and it is still used today in Montessori schools around the planet.

     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 this system you have to spend some time with your children as it is a hands on system. You can’t just show your child and leave them to learn by themselves. I used the program to teach my daughter who was having problems with reading and now she is okay. But I did put the time in. I like the system as it makes use of sandpaper letters and it starts to teach words very early on in the lessons. Even sight words and non-phonic words are made up with sandpaper letters. 

     Synthetic phonics is another system that has been around for a long time and taught me to read many years ago. But the main difference between the two is with synthetic phonics the child learns all the phonic sounds before starting on words. I prefer to bring in words early on in the learning experience as the child can start to read easy books earlier. 

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