Hi moms, today we will talk about Children Book Reading. Before a kid learns to see, he or she must first learn the spoken language, and this really is one of the first instances where family unit members such as for instance dad, mom, older siblings, and grandparents play an important role in “teaching” the kid the spoken English language. Whether small children realize it or not, they gain very early experience of the alphabet when parents sing the alphabet song to them. They start to develop language skills by being read to and spoken to. One of the keys to teaching children reading early on is by exposing them to alphabet letters, books, and reading in their mind often.
Reading nursery rhymes and children’s books are an important part of having children to understand printed text. Speak to your children, and talk for them often, whether they understand or not is not important when they’re just babies. The more you talk and communicate with your kids, the higher they will develop. The key is exposure, and repeated exposure. Once your son or daughter learns to speak, you are able to begin teaching them reading at home.
I often hear parents claim that they don’t really desire to “push” the youngster too hard. How can teaching your son or daughter to see at a early age be considered “pushing” them too hard? If you as a parent already have the mentality that reading is a chore, and teaching them to learn is pushing “too much”, you certainly can’t expect your children to be excited about learning reading. On the contrary, understanding how to read offers a child an opportunity for a lifetime to master, discover, and enjoy the wonders of reading. Parents (including myself) will often underestimate the abilities and learning capabilities of young children. Once we first began our teaching reading program with our first child when she was 2 years and 8 months, little did we expect that in just a couple short weeks, she’d be reading not merely words, but sentences and story books. After about 3 months, by enough time she was 2 years 11 months old, our daughter could read “Part of to Reading – step 2 (pre-school to grade 1 level)” books with some guidance. The benefits of learning how to read were apparent – improved speech clarity, and better reading ability and reading comprehension.
You will find no shortage of studies which find many benefits in teaching children reading at an earlier age. For example, one study administered a Stanford achievement test from the beginning of kindergarten and then again at the conclusion of grade one discovered that early language based skills were highly associated with later academic performance in school aged children.  Similar studies also found a advanced of letter knowledge in kindergarten can reliably predict better later literacy skills. Having a house environment that’s conducive to literacy growth is important in a child’s development, and directly affects a child’s language and literacy development. Studies have found that responsiveness and support of the property environment could be the strongest predictor of children’s language and early literacy skills.  My point listed here is help make parents conscious that children who enter kindergarten with highly developed early reading skills will achieve greater success with systematic reading education. 
It’s never too late to begin home lessons and programs to teach your young ones to read. Regardless how old your youngster is, starting a reading program at a early age may have ample benefits. Begin with lots of talking, singing, and reading to your child from birth, and once your child is able to speak, you can start a simple reading program.
Start with teaching your child some basic letters and their sounds, and whilst soon your child learn just a couple letters and their sounds, you are able to begin teaching them simple blends utilising the letter knowledge they’ve acquired. Focus on ear training with your youngster on oral blending and word segmentation. One of the keys to teaching children read is developing phonemic awareness. Studies show that phonemic awareness is one of the best predictors of reading success in children. Thank you for reading this article about Children Book Reading and see you next time.
