I LOVE READING!
Where has 2018 gone?
The kindergarten children have settled into a routine and so have their parents!
And so begin the teacher parent interviews.
It shouldn’t be a time for anxiety or stress but a time for parents and teachers to see if there are any concerns regarding their child’s learning and address any issues in a positive way.
Just remember that learning should be fun!
So important to start the early reading years with phonic instructions.
Phonics Strategies and Reading
When using phonics to teach reading skills, you will achieve better results if you make it fun. Fun with phonics can be achieved in a variety of ways and there are many phonics games available.
There are great apps and reading programs that help build confidence and learning.
As a parent trying to encourage your child to read, there are three rules you should keep in mind:
Once children learn the basic alphabet and the corresponding sounds of each letter, children can focus on blending those sounds to form the whole word. It is a systematic progression. After words, children learn how to read sentences, then a whole story. Consistently practising these phonetic skills through regular reading will help children to decode and pronounce any words accurately. Then when a child discovers a new word, they automatically know what to do to pronounce it correctly.
