Online Reading Program
Whether you are looking for a home school reading program, reading programs for struggling readers, reading programs for kids, a free summer reading program – you name it, you can use this program to help you. We have many success stories from homeschoolers, teachers, and parents alike! Before we begin, I do want to let you know that we have word for word directions on how to teach your child to read. Here is a link to our digital book, or our amazon book.
If you would like to receive a sample of our word for word directions, or, if you want to sign up to receive an email each day to follow our free reading program, enter your information into this form and we will send you a daily email for our learn to read program. (Sign up for the learn to read program when you get an email from us asking what program you want to sign up for).
Day 1: Learn about the different online reading programs we offer: Sight Word Reading Program, Phonics Reading Program, How to Teach the Alphabet, and Word Family Videos All the online reading programs we offer are listed here (or click the picture).
Day 2: – Test your child’s reading readiness using our free reading readiness test.
Day 3: We suggest following the Sight Word Reading Program first. This gives the child confidence. A confident reader loves to read and wants to keep reading. Then begin the Phonics Reading Program around Day 15, and then the Word Family Videos around Day 25. From here forward we will follow this path that we suggest.
Now you can begin our phonics reading program to help the children sound out words and practice reading, writing, spelling and sentence formation.
Today the children learn the word ‘all’. It is a great day to introduce word ladders. Word ladders will help build vocabulary, speed, accuracy (fluency), and spelling!
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.
