The first stage of ‘becoming a reader’ usually begins in kindergarten or grade 1. This is when children begin to learn the relationships between letters and sounds, how sounds are put together to form words, and how words can be used to form sentences.
When children do not learn to read efficiently during the primary school years, it is almost always because they have not learned how to decode words. This course equips parents and caregivers with the knowledge and sequence of foundational reading skills, which is focused on the decoding of words. It also provides fun and engaging activities for teaching children at home.
- The essentials of the Science of Reading and why it matters
- The sequence for teaching the foundational skills – a weekly ‘menu’
- Seventy-five fun and engaging activities proven to be effective with young children
- Eight ways to increase your child’s motivation to read
- How to instill ‘habits of mind’ that support children’s development
- Simple tools to assess your child’s progress
Children learn to read at different rates. The rate at which a child becomes a skilled reader depends on many factors. Whilst we cannot guarantee your child will master the skills in 75 days, we can give you the core strategies you will need to support your child in becoming a reader. Your child will make the best progress if you spend an hour per day teaching these foundational skills.
