Pay attention to these 10 essential steps to teach a child to read, some tips that will be very useful in this exciting adventure of reading.
Learning to read will mean for your child a huge step in your learning. Above all, do not pressure a child or try to force him to read ahead of time. You must wait for him to be ready, to show interest and to see him with enthusiasm to learn. This is the ideal time to help you. We give you these 10 tips to teach your child to read. Aim !:
- Read a lot to your child. Nothing like reading to a child to encourage him to read and make him interested in learning to read. If you read to your child and you get him to be passionate about what you are reading, he will immediately be curious to learn to read more and more stories himself. And reading a lot means reading every day, since your child is a baby. Of course, at first you should use stories with lots of colorful illustrations.
- You constantly ask him what you are reading to him. Even if it is a baby, and you think that he will not understand ... of course he understands! Help him improve his reading comprehension by constantly asking about what you are reading. In this way, he will reconsider the story and find it much more attractive. You will discover, for example, that in all stories there is a beginning, a middle plot (middle), and an end (denouement). This will help you to structure what you read more easily later.
- You read a lot. The example is basic to encourage children to read. If your child sees that you get excited about a book, that you enjoy reading, he will be curious to discover why it is so interesting. Read a lot and have your child see you read.
- Teach him letters beyond books. You can learn to read not only through books. The best learning comes from the world around us. Take advantage when you go shopping at the supermarket, or every time you see a store sign. Identify the letters and show him what it says. For example, if you are buying apples, show him the sign where it says 'apples'. Start with the letters: 'Look, the M for apple.' Look for something that also has that letter: 'Look, the M for apple is also here, in peach' ...
- Teach him word families. Children are very good at grouping. You can take the opportunity to teach words and all those that are part of their word family. For example, if you teach him to read the word 'Flower', you can take the opportunity to teach him the words 'Vase', 'Florido' ...
- Use fun tools, like poetry or songs. Children learn much better through play. They really like songs, because it invites them to dance while they learn, or rhyming poetry, which is usually short and fun. Nothing like a good song to teach them the letters of the alphabet or a funny poem to teach them to read the days of the week.
- Play games or hobbies. There are many types of games to teach children to read: pastimes where they must match a letter with the rest of the word with the help of a drawing ... You can create your own games for your child, cutting out pictures of food or objects of commercial catalogs, for example, and asking that each object be linked with its name on it.
- Don't forget the phonemes. One thing is the graphic letter and another is the phoneme, how the letter sounds. Teach them how to pronounce each of the letters of the alphabet. Thus, the 'M' will not be 'eme', but 'mmmm'. By matching this letter to the rest, your child will know not to pronounce 'Emearco', but rather 'Mmmmarco'.
- Teach sounds by words together. Well, once your child knows how to recognize the letters of the alphabet and the phoneme of each of them, it will be time to join them into words. Practice and practice with all the words of the story that you choose. Point to each word and ask him to try to figure out what it would be like. You can help him, but let him try first.
- Let me memorize a few words. Memorizing a few words will serve as a guide for matching letters and sounds. If he memorizes his name, the name of his father and mother, and some basic word like 'hello', 'house', 'mom', you will be offering him a reference so that he can make his own equivalences and try to 'decipher' that 'new' word that I've never tried to read before.
