What phonics materials do you need to teach phonics

     When you start to teach phonics all you really need is a good phonics chart and possible some word lists. These phonic materials, charts and word lists, help you to get the pronunciation of the phonic sounds and

once you have mastered that you can start reading books

The books I like are the scholastic phonics books. 

     They are a good size and the stories are very easy for children to understand and they use a lot of repetition

     There are a number of different ways to teach your child to read and that depends on you and your time. If you like the one to one approach then I recommend the Montessori way of teaching reading. With this method you decide what to teach and you guide your child through the lessons. 

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.

     The phonics materials you need for the Montessori way are very simple as you just need sandpaper letters and you make up the words. This is a very good approach if you are helping your child with homework. You just use the words from the schoolbook. For homeschooling I combined the Montessori way with the scholastic phonics books and this was a very effective combination. 

     If your time is limited you can use phonics reading software that you download onto your computer. You will have to show your child how to use the software, then after a week or so you can leave them to study by themselves. If your children do self-study you have to test them regularly to see if they are learning.

     This Montessori program is the one I used and I found it to be very effective. For more information about other phonics programs see our teach reading page

Thank you for your time
