I think one of the things that almost all parents worry about is teaching their children how to read. It can be scary, but also one of the most rewarding. I am sure you can imagine the feeling when you have two children showing interest. I’d say the best word to describe my feeling going into it this year was challenging. I was excited to get started and excited that my children had a love for books already. My goal today is to share easy ways for you to teach early reading skills. I love all of the progress we have been making this year and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Teach Early Reading Skills with Hands on Learning
By talking to your children regularly and reading to them you have already helped your child with major brain development. Keep up the great work 🙂
The key to reading success is making sure your child has a strong foundation. Not forcing them into something before they are ready, but recognizing the early signs and giving them the tools they need to become successful readers.
Bells enjoyed eating part of her activity (apple) when she was done.
We have been moving along Level 3 with Little B and his reading is coming along great!
Here we are having fun with sight words (useful words).
One of the fun games we play is Eye Spy: I put out 3-5 cards at a time and I will say eye spy the word ME. He points to the correct word. As the child learns more words and gets more confident, slowly make it more challenging. Have 2-3 words that start with the same letter. When you know he isn’t just looking at that beginning letter/sound but actually knows the words, they have mastered those useful words. Yay!!!

This is just a glimpse into our reading adventure and how happy I am with The Royal Road to Reading. Honestly, the BEST part for me seeing how great my kids are doing and how much they enjoy learning. My success has come from the videos! Imagine being able to have a 1 on 1 with two teachers who have over 40 years experience sharing all of their games, books, tips, experience, and reading knowledge with you. Yes Please!!! I’m a happy mama with happy kids and that’s the best feeling ever!
