Teaching Phonics - Make a 3 Letters Word A Vowel

I printed those papers quite some time, I tried to teach her early this year when she just turned 3 years old, but she couldn't get the technique, so I stopped.

Recently she found the papers and requested to play the 'game' (I always use the term 'game' whenever I introduce a learning method to her), and she got the reading technique this time round.

If you're interested to try it out with your kid(s), you may print the papers here.

Teaching method:
1) Teach the kid to read the ending sound made by vowel A, e.g. at, am, an, ap, ab (refer to the link above)
2) Make the sound of 'at' (do it one by one), tell the kid to pick the paper of the sound you've made.
3) Put the papers (those at, am, an, ap etc) on the floor, make a sound and tell the kid to stand on the paper of the sound you've made.
4) After the kid is familiar with the ending sound, teach the kid to make a word by introducing other papers. Example for 'at', show the kid 'cat', teach the kid '' (read the sound of c and at) 'cat' (read the word out loud).
5) Arrange those ending sound papers (e.g. at, am, an, ap, ab etc) on the floor, give the kid a paper (e.g. cat), tell the kid to read and put it under the correct ending sound paper.
6) Say a word (e.g. cat) and tell the kid to pick the paper up. If the kid can't find it, hint the kid which ending sound is the word under.

Mistakes I've made:
1) Give the papers to my girl and expect her to read them out by herself, without teaching her the reading method. By doing this, my girl is actually memorising the word, and not learning to pronounce the word.
2) Give her too many papers at a time. She was a bit confused when I gave her all the papers and expected her to sort them out, she then memorised the words, which is not the purpose of the lesson.

The purpose of this lesson is to teach the kid the phonics method of reading, not to make them memorise the words. Thus, Do Not flash the cards to your kids, emphasise more on the sound, and how each letter interact with the ending sound. E.g. when 'c' meets 'at' becomes 'cat, when 'b' meets 'at' becomes 'bat' and etc.

I'll be teaching her the other Vowels, will be updating here soon.

Teach Your Child to Read Today!

Reading is one of the most important skills one must master to succeed in life. It helps your child succeed in school, helps them build self-confidence, and helps to motivate your child. Being able to read will help your child learn more about the world, understand directions on signs and warnings on labels, allow them to discover reading as an entertainment, and help them gather information.

Learning to read is very different from learning to speak, and it does not happen all at once. There is a steady progression in the development of reading ability over time. The best time for children to start learning to read is at a young age - even before they enter pre-school. Once a child is able to speak, they can begin developing basic reading skills. Very young children have a natural curiosity to learn about everything. They are naturally intrigued by the printed texts they see, and are eager to learn about the sounds made by those letters. You will likely notice that your young child likes to look at books and thoroughly enjoys being read to. They will even pretend to behave like a reader by holding books and pretend to read them.

At what age can you start teaching a child to read? When they're babies? At 2 years old, 3, 4, or 5 years old, or wait until they're in school?

If you delay your child's reading skill development until he or she enters school, you are putting your child at risk...

Did you know that 67% of all Grade 4 students cannot read at a proficient level! According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, of those 67%, 33% read at just the BASIC level, and 34% CANNOT even achieve reading abilities of the lowest basic level!

There is a super simple and extremely effective system that will even teach 2 and 3 year old children to read.

This is a unique reading program developed by two amazing parents and reading teachers, Jim and Elena, who successfully taught their four children to read before turning 3 years old. The reading system they developed is so effective that by the time their daughter was just 4 years 2 months old, she was already reading at a grade 3 level. They have videos to prove it.

Their reading system is called Children Learning Reading, and it is nothing like the infomercials you see on TV, showing babies appearing to read, but who have only learned to memorize a few word shapes. This is a program that will teach your child to effectively decode and read phonetically. It will give your child a big head start, and allow you to teach your child to read and help your child develop reading skills years ahead of similar aged children.

This is not a quick fix solution where you put your child in front of the TV or computer for hours and hope that your child learns to "read"... somehow...

This is a reading program that requires you, the parent, to be involved. But the results are absolutely amazing. Thousands of parents have used the Children Learning Reading program to successfully teach their children to read.

All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes a day.
