If you believe that teaching your child to read and helping your child develop proficient reading skills is the key to future success, and if you wish to help your children develop to their fullest potential… then you must read this message carefully.
Here’s why: I’m Jim, a reading teacher, and father of 4 amazing kids. Forget about everything you’ve read and heard about how and when your child should learn to read – most of the information out there is irrelevant, some are downright detrimental, and you may even be shocked to hear that starting off by learning sight words could actually lead to reading problems and difficulties! So before you run off and decide to teach your child using sight words or any other approach, PLEASE watch our video above in full where I explain why you should NOT start teaching with sight words and show you the combination of two simple, scientifically proven methods, that will enable you to teach your child to read, and help your child become a fast and fluent reader.
Here, let me show you what sort of incredible accomplishments can be made possible using our teaching methods.
Teach Your Child to Read Through a Unique Combination of Synthetic Phonics and Phonemic Awareness Skills Development. It is a fact – helping children develop phonemic awareness skills is the essential step in acquiring reading skills. The spoken English language is made up of words and sentences, and these words are made up of individual sounds or phonemes. Children learn to say and recognize these individual sounds through a process called developing phonemic awareness. According to the National Reading Panel, phonemic awareness improves children’s word reading and reading comprehension, and it also helps children learn to spell. Research has indicated that phonemic awareness has a direct correlation with students’ ability to read as they get older, and it helps to build a foundation for children to understand the rules of the English language.
