How I Teach My Child to Read

Hi friends! Join me for this mini homeschool Mom reading class. I am learning how to teach my child to read and I think my fellow homeschool moms can benefit from this mini class. Yours truly, Jackie with Homeschooling His Children

How I Teach My Child to Read

So I focus on teaching my child the sounds the letters make. My son is also having a bit of trouble understanding which letter is a b,d,p because they are all pretty similar right? So knowing the sounds of the letters is super important! Also teaching your child the vowels will be super important. 

Sounds of the Letters

The sounds of the letters is super important to know. All the letters of the alphabet are constant sounds except for the vowels. The highlighted letters are going to only make one sound. These letters are know as constant letters

 A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z

Vowel Friends

Our Vowel friends are A,E,I,O,U and sometimes Y. Here is a reading rule that I have found to be super duper helpful! 

"When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. The first vowel says its name and the second one is silent."

Example:

Even = in the word "even" we hear e say its name. And the second vowel is silent. 

This is a basic rule and doesn't apply to every word. But its a good rule to keep in mind when teaching your child to read.

Our Curriculum

We obviously want people to buy our curriculum but In truly think it will help you teach your child to read. So if you have a child in kindergarten, first, or second grade who is still struggling to read I suggest that you check out our curriculum. We would love to teach you how to teach your child to read.

What Makes Our Reading Program Different

Two major reasons why our curriculum is different. The first reason our curriculum is different that other kindergarten reading programs is that I am a fellow homeschool mom. Yep, I am a mom just like you. I am not a reading expert and I tend to explain these difficult reading concepts in a more simple easy to understand formate. 

The second reason our curriculum is different is that we focus on teaching you how to teach reading. As the homeschool mom you will want to know how to teach your child to read. Teaching reading is difficult and that is why we want to help teach you as the teacher as much as possible.

I hope you all have a awesome weekend! Happy Friday ya'll <3
