Best Ways to Teach reading


Letter Magnets

Most students, especially really young ones, like to learn with things they can physically touch and manipulate. Paper and pencil won't always keep them as engaged as they could be. Letter magnets on your fridge make reading and spelling more accessible to your kids. They will begin to associate letters with words. Being able to use the magnets with their own hands keeps them engaged and interested. It can also be helpful for learning vowel sounds.

Make word cards

A great way to practice reading simple words with your student is by making word cards together. Flash cards can be a very effective way to practice memorization and build a functional vocabulary. You can start off by writing words with three distinct syllables. When using the cards with your student, make sure to emphasize the three sounds in the word. This activity is great for building knowledge of phonics. This will later transition into being able to sound out difficult words.

Read together

Kids won't be interested in reading if they aren't exposed to it every single day. A great way to make sure your kid associates reading with positive memories is to make reading a part of your family's daily routine. Whether it's a bedtime story or reading during homework, kids will learn to love reading with their families. They are also observing everything you do: sounding out words, using specific sounds, even using emotion and emphasis. They will pick up a lot of these actions and mimic them in their own reading.
