Part 1 : 3 Tips to Teach Your child How to Read
By: Children Learning Reading
Learning to read at an early age is important for the development of
the child. It helps them develop a better understand of their
surroundings, allows them to gather information from printed
materials, and provides them with a wonderful source of
entertainment when they read stories and rhymes. Children develop
at different rates, and some children will develop reading skills
quicker than other children; however, what's important is that as the
parent, you are keenly aware of your child's maturity and reading
level to provide them with appropriate books and activities to help
them improve.
As parents, you are the most important teacher for your children. You
will introduce your child to books and reading. Below we have some
tips to help you teach your child to read.

Teach Your Child How to Read Tip #1
Teach your child alphabet letters and sounds at the same time.
Studies have shown that children learn best when they are taught the
letter names and letter sounds at the same time. In one study, 58
preschool children were randomly assigned to receive instructions in
letter names and sounds, letter sound only, or numbers (control

group). The results of this study are consistent with past research
results in that it found children receiving letter name and sound
instruction were most likely to learn the sounds of letters whose
names included cues to their sounds. [1]
When teaching your child the letter sounds, have them slowly trace
the letter, while saying the sound of the letter at the same time. For
example, if you were teaching your child the letter "A", you would
say:
"The letter A makes the /A/ (ah) sound."
Then have your child say the /A/ sound while tracing the letter with
his or her index finger.

Teaching a Child How to Read Tip #2
When teaching your child to read, always emphasize with them that
the proper reading order should be from left to right, and top to
bottom. To adults, this may seem so basic that anyone should know it.
However, our children are not born with the knowledge that printed
text should be read from left to right and top to bottom, and this is
why you'll sometimes see children reading from right to left instead because they were never explicitly taught to read from left to right.

When teaching your child how to read, always emphasize this point
with them.

Teach Your Child How to Read Tip #3
Teach final consonant blends first. Teaching words such "at" and
"and" can lead your child directly to learning words that rhyme with
these. For example, for "at", you can have:
Lat
Pat
Mat
Cat
Sat
Bat
Spat
Chat
For "and", you can have these rhyming words:
Sand
Band
Land
Hand
Stand

Bland
Brand
Grand
and so on...
You can start teaching blends once your child has learned the sounds
of some consonants and short vowel sounds. You don't need to wait
until your child has mastered the sounds of all the letters before
teaching blends.
Learning to read is a long process, but it doesn't have to be a difficult
process. Broken down into intuitive and logical steps, a child as young
as two years old can learn to read, and older children can accomplish
even more.

Part 2: Teach your children the sounds of letters
effectively
So, you want to teach your child to read, but before a child can learn
to read, he or she must first learn at least some of the letters in the
alphabet, their names, and the sounds that they represent. To be able
to read, a child must be able to recognize the letters, know the sound
of the letters, and be able to recognize the letters quickly and say the
sound without hesitation. There is plenty of discussion and
disagreement on whether it's better to teach children using whole
language programs or using methods which incorporate phonics and
phonemic awareness instructions. I think the debate on this is settled
when the National Reading Panel stated from their findings of
reviewing over 1,900 studies that phonics and phonemic awareness
produces superior reading results than whole language programs.
There is also some debate on whether to teach your child only letter
names, or only the sounds which the letters represent. However,
studies have also settled this debate by finding that teaching a child
alphabet names and sounds together produces the best results. In
fact, studies have found that there is little value in teaching
preschoolers letter forms or letter sounds separately. This was
indicated by an Australian study involving 76 preschool children. The

children received 6 weeks of training in either letter awareness,
phonemic awareness, or control tasks, and then received another 6
weeks of training in either letter-sound correspondence or control
tasks. The study found that training in either phoneme or letter
awareness assisted with learning of letter-sound correspondences,
and that the phonemically trained children group had an advantage
on recognition tasks. The study found that there is little value in
training in letter form or letter sounds separately. [1]
As you can see, there is basically no point in only teaching either the
names of the alphabet letters, or the sounds the letters make. A child
must learn the name and the sound of the alphabet letter. When
teaching your child the alphabet, instead of simply teaching them the
name of the alphabet such as "this is the letter A", teach them like so:
"This is the letter A, and the letter A makes the /A/ sound." (note: the
/A/ denote the sound "A" makes, and not its name). Similarly, you can

teach your child the other alphabet letters in this way including both
name and sound of the letter. This is the way I teach my children the
alphabet letters. Other studies have also determined that teaching
the letter names and sounds together helped children learn.
58 preschool children were randomly assigned to receive instructions
in letter names and sounds, letter sound only, or numbers (control
group). The results of this study are consistent with past research
results in that it found children receiving letter name and sound
instruction were most likely to learn the sounds of letters whose
names included cues to their sounds. [2]
To be able to effectively teach your children the sounds of letters, you
must first master the proper pronunciation of the letters yourself. It is
critical for you as a parent to be able to first say the sounds of the
letters correctly before teaching your children, and this is much
tougher than it may seem.
