1. I have talked much about whole brain teaching. The following site has an interesting free on-line test to find out which side you or your children use the most: Sommer + Sommer
a parent, can you teach your child to read, or help them improve? If
you can read, the answer is yes. With the right tools and a little
information, it is very easy.
The number one cause of reading difficulty is that children are taught
the wrong way to pronounce some of the phonic sounds. It does not
effect all children, but because it effects so many, it is important to
get the basics right. Computer games often teach the letters, T,D,B,G,H,C,J,W,K,
P and sometimes M, incorrectly by putting a lower case u sound at the
end. For example: we do not say hu-a-pu-y for happy.
So it is recommend the parent teach the phonic sounds to the child, so you
know they are getting the basics correctly. No need to be intimidated.
Following is a free web page that allows you to hear the sounds (video
format), so that you can make sure the child has learned the sounds
properly. Learning the sounds correctly has even helped sixth graders
who were having difficulty with their reading. But, of course, it is
easier to teach it right from the start. Hear Phonic Sounds Free 2. I use the whole brain method of teaching language arts with the game, Ring Around The Phonics,
because children love it, and advance rapidly. It is also great way to
catch children up who are behind in their reading. It is very
economical, because it can be used to teach all sorts of language arts subjects, and can even earn you some extra income. It makes a great gift too.
