Whether your dear child is 2 or 8, I hope you will take a moment to look over this blog. I have tried to include the steps and tips that helped my children become early readers. When I started teaching dear daughter, I struggled to find a clear and concise resource online. I am writing this blog to pass on my experiences, and what worked for us, because some of my friends asked me how I taught my kids to read. I am no expert, just a mom with some experience.
I post helpful hints, relevant information from the news, and more information on the All About Reading page. To get an alert about these posts, I hope you will follow this blog. The Follow button is at the bottom of the menu on the left of every page.
In class, kids are able to receive very sparse personal attention. At home, you can give them 15 or 30 minutes of dedicated time every day (or almost every day). This dedicated time can take them from learning the sounds of the letters to reading books on their own. Certainly, there are many children who need specialized intervention for one reason or another, but using an informed and ordered approach to learning to read will benefit everyone. I hope my experiences and methods are useful to you, or set you on your journey to your own approach. And when you and yours find success, I hope you will come back and share what worked for you.
