Children Learning Reading is the ultimate program for teaching children how to read and how to do so incredibly well, without ever using “sight words”. Instead, it focuses on teaching children how to read by teaching them the 44 sounds of the English language. Using sight words to teach reading results in a child memorizing the shapes of words and letters, instead of actually reading them. This gets confusing when you realize that words such as “hat” also look like bat, bad, cat, mad, sad, lad, etc. Not only that but there are over 170,000 different words that eventually have to be memorized with this technique. By teaching children the core 44 sounds of the English language, they can pretty much ready anything as soon as they learn these 44 sounds. Yes, it really is that simple. Reading doesn’t have to be a complicated process and it isn’t difficult. It’s how we teach reading that makes it so hard for children across the globe. So, if you have a little one struggling with reading, run a day care, are a teacher, principal or want to help more children read with fun, easy lessons, here’s everything you can expect from Children Learning Reading.
What is Children Learning Reading?
Despite the teaching curriculum changing several times, the way reading is taught to children has stayed the same. Sight words have been used to teach children how to read by getting them to recognize important or commonly used words, such as “the”, “and”, and “cat”. The problem is that sight words actually result in children memorizing the shape of the word, which leads to many difficulties moving forward. After all, “and” has the same shape as “rad” but the two sound totally different.
Children Learning Reading is an online program that trades in the traditional reading method of using sight words and focuses on a new method that teaches children the 44 sounds of the English language. This method helps them learn how to actually read the words, instead of memorizing them by shape, which gets confusing when you consider bat, lab, and but all have the same shape. So, forget the flash cards.
With Children Learning Reading, you receive a comprehensive system that provides you with step-by-step guides on how to teach children the 44 sounds of the English language, how to use the 44 sounds to teach children how to read, and of course, how to implement the entire program into your household or classroom. The program comes with two progressive guides – one for the basics and one for advanced phonics. It also comes with printable lesson plans, audio files, games, activities and much more to ensure a fun and easy learning experience for kids (and for those teaching them).
The entire learning/teaching process is broken down into a five-step process, which is:
- Step 1 Manual: Phonics Foundations
- Step 2 Manual: Advanced Phonics Manual
- Step 3: Fun To Read Lesson Stories
- Step 4: Phonics Sounds – Letter Sound MP3 Audios
- Step 5: Common Sight Words and Children’s Rhymes Book
Now, the really great thing is that you receive immediate access to the entire system as soon as you purchase since it’s digital. So, you just sign in and download the content right onto your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. This makes it easy and convenient to access all of the teachings, lesson plans, audios and activities wherever you are, wherever you’re teaching, or wherever your child goes.
