When you teach your children to read you need to start with an easy reading book

     Finding a good reading book for your child is quite difficult because there are so many books out there. I like the Scholastic books but I couldn’t

work out their website. So I went to my favorite, Amazon and they popped right up. 

I think the best books for early readers and struggling readers are the Scholastic Phonics Readers

     That series along with Montessori sandpapers letters made a big difference in my daughter’s reading ability. Also I like the Reading A-Z books. You can download up to 30 free and after that you pay a yearly subscription, so if you like the free books, subscribe. Another website I like is the Learning Page, they have lots of free books too. 

On both these sites the books can be printed out and colored in. 

     I think coloring in is a very good idea because it strengthens the child’s hand. A lot of parents disagree with me on the coloring in, they seem to think their child is not learning unless there is an open book in front of them. A lot of problems with writing is due to weak hands, especially with girls. 

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.

     There are also a lot of reading games available on the Internet. These games can keep your child occupied for hours and she is still learning. The computer corrects mistakes and keeps score and kids love them. The games are very good at increasing vocabulary and spelling. Check out the games at Starfall and on the PBS kids website they are pretty good.
