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!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
