Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons9066135
If you can give your child a thirst for reading, the total world opens to him. We noticed it with Joy, who at 6 was reading at a level twice her age. But for Joy, a visual learner, the procedure had been an easy, almost effortless procedure. When we experimented with to use the same approaches with Hope, we discovered two things: Hope is not a visual learner and we truly had no strategy to teach reading! So with Hope we had to start from scratch. We located ourselves bouncing from one strategy to an additional, scatterbrained, but as well bad to place out the megabucks required for any of the flashier packages. And as you may possibly assume, we did not make a whole lot of progress. Then we stumbled across this book! What a need it met.
Phonics-primarily based, easy to follow, low-cost, nonconsumable, and self-contained, it was all that we were looking for. There are no workbooks, no flashcards, absolutely nothing fancy—just you, one-on-one with your child for 20 minutes a day.
Based mostly on the nationally effective DISTAR plan, this system has been adapted for mother or father and child use, and appears customized-made for the home school setting. Yes, this strategy does use visual clues in the first 80 lessons, but then they drop the clues and your child will take off operating. We had been doubtful at first, but following going via it with four children and hearing hundreds of “success” stories, we're believers! Right after 100 lessons your child will be reading at a solid 2nd grade degree.
My only complaint requires the stories. There is a new story each lesson, starting up at lesson 13, and they are too silly for my tastes. But they were the highlights for all our children, so I won't complain also loudly! Hope, after 50 lessons, was reading smoothly, writing quick “stories,” and on her very own picked up and read other "easy" books. She finished the book before her 5th birthday and effortlessly moved into a 3rd grade reading text. Grace also completed the system whilst still 4, although there were days that we a lot more than exceeded the twenty minutes prescribed.
