A program for 4 to 6 year olds that outlines 3 simple steps to initiate early reading skills.
Children require alphabetic knowledge in order to embark on the process of learning to read and spell. However, rather than letter naming ability, alphabet sound knowledge is the more important skill. Designed by a Speech Pathologist for use in schools and the home, Teach a child to Read in 3 simple steps for 4 to 6 year olds outlines the steps to initiate early reading skills. Using five minute daily sessions, these simple card based activities produce readers.
Step 1: Alphabet Sounds
Step 2: Blending Sounds
Step 3: Combine Step 1 & 2
This program aims to establish a strong alphabet sound ability. Children kinaesthetically feel what their mouth is doing when they produce the letter sounds. Children see what their mouths look like when they produce the sound. Children also visually connect a picture/word with the letter sound (e.g. m – ‘mix’, t – ‘teeth’ and s – ‘snake’). Children move and rehearse a basic action associated with each target picture (which also engages a kinaesthetic dimension.)
