When teaching your child to read phonics printables do come in handy

     On the internet there are untold sites that have free phonics printable. But I donít use them mainly because the phonics printables are usually in block letters like on a keyboard and I like to teach cursive. If a child can

write in cursive, as in writing not printing, they can write faster and I think more beautifully. 

     Donít let what I think stop you as there is some really good stuff out there for free and it all helps. I used to print out phonics printables from the internet, but I just gave up when I started teaching writing as opposed to printing. 

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 system I use now is the Montessori system of sandpaper letters. The kids usually start off writing in the air or tracing the letters and words on the floor or walls. They donít usually start writing on paper until they are ready and want to write. 

     For this system I donít use printables just a blackboard the child can write on and it seems to work perfectly. With the blackboard I save heaps of paper and the kids still get writing practice. 

     When the kids trace the sandpaper letters they are learning how to write without holding a pen. So when they pick up a pen or piece of chalk they can write because they have been learning the way to write the word by tracing the sandpaper letter. 

     The Montessori system is very good for homeschooling or as a supplement to what the children learn in school. I use this program here as it is very effective and can be adapted to what the child is learning in school. For other phonics courses I recommend see our teach reading page
