Teaching Your Child To Read: The Basics


How to teach my child to read: Teaching your child how to read is one of the most important jobs a parent can have. You are shaping their future by how you teach them how to read. The following tips will help you get started with teaching your child how to read, and they’ll even tell you what not to do!

1) It’s never too early – the earlier you start reading with your child, the easier it will be for them to learn how
2) Read together – don’t just sit there while they’re reading on their own
3) Don’t give up- sometimes children need more time before they pick up how to read

Teach letters first- It might seem like common sense. However, teaching letter recognition should come before sound recognition as it sets up a foundation for success down the line. Children who have been taught letter names and sounds have been shown to learn how to read faster than those who were not taught these skills and learn more vocabulary words overall.
