Today I wanted to post on how to teach your child to read. I thought this would be a great goal for many of you – help your child learn to read!
Do your children set goals? You may remember our free worksheet for kids to help your children set goals. My five year old has a goal to be able to read before he starts kindergarten. He is on Day 20 of our Learn to read free program and he is reading like a pro! I am so proud of him!
Perhaps you have a little one that you would like help learn to read? If so, you are in luck! Sight and Sound Reading is just the place to help you do this… Here is how you can help your child learn to read!
How to teach your child to read
2) If your child is ready to read, learn to read for free by starting on Day 1 using our free videos and worksheets. The way our program works: Eighty percent of the words beginning readers read are sight words. We start by teaching the children sight words in the context of a story. The words build upon themselves each day. The children gain confidence because they know all of the words they are reading and they don’t struggle at all. Slowly we introduce phonics and teach the children how to sound out words.
4) If you would rather teach your child to read yourself -we made that easy too. We offer a teacher’s manual or a premium membership that has word for word instructions of what to say and do. If you don’t want to print all the worksheets, we offer a workbook from amazon.
So.. are you going to make a goal in 2015 to help someone learn to read? We hope so! Let us know how we can help and what questions you have!
