Teach A Child How To Read





Teach A Child How To Read




Reading is one of the most important life skills that a person can learn. Learning it early on will help your child to prepare for school. Children develop differently - some learn to read early (4-5 years old) while some would learn a few years later. Ideally, children aged 6-7 should be starting to learn how to read and write on their own.

It is best that children learn at home, taught by their parents. Follow this guide to effectively teach your child how to read:

Make her environment print-rich


If a child can constantly see printed words in your home, it will be easier for her to understand the connection between letter symbols and their sounds. Engage your little one in an environment that is print-rich - you can hang charts, posters and labels in your bedroom. Books will also help a lot. When you're out of the house, point out letters in billboards, posters and signages. It is best to focus on the first letter of the words you see and teach your child the sound it makes.

Another thing that could be very helpful is a set of alphabet flash cards. When teaching your toddler the alphabet, remember that it is more important to focus on the sound each letter makes than their names.

Play fun and simple word games


Children learn best through playing. And if you make it seem like learning is playing then your little one will be more interested. Playing simple word games at home or in the car will help prepare him to the process of learning how to read. It's ideal to play word games that will encourage your toddler to listen and focus on identifying and manipulating the sound of words.

You can start by pointing out an object and ask your child to identify it. Then ask him questions like "what letter does that word start/end with?" or "what other words start with the letter ___?"

Use the power of books


Books are probably the most important part of the learning process. Allot some quality time with your child daily just to read a few books together. It will help develop their comprehension skills and improve their vocabulary. They'll also be able to associate reading as a fun time (with you) which will encourage them to learn to read more.
