Teach Your Child to Read: Reading Program {Holiday Gift Idea – Giveaway}

Two year old learning to read!

The Reading Program: How to Teach Your Child to Read is a step-by-step program that helps parents teach their children how to read.  It is designed for children between ages 2 (who can speak) up to 6-7 years old.

This learning program focuses on phonics and developing phonemic awareness skills. After a child can speak, he can learn to say and recognize individual phonemes, and that phonemic awareness correlates with his ability to read as he gets older.

The program is divided in short lessons (some even just 5 minutes long) that are great to keep your child’s attention and avoid distractions.  I personally love the fact that there is no T.V or computer programs used at all, it is all about reading, repeating the phonemes and working together with your child.

Teach your Child to ReadThere are two lesson stages (one or two) depending on your child’s level.  Stage two is the more advanced level and it is designed for further reading skill development after the child has developed a solid foundation for reading by working on stage one.

At the moment I am working on the first stage with my 2 year-old and I love that we can follow the program at our own pace.  We practice when we do our reading during the day or at story time before bed. We are bonding, enjoying our time together and he is learning at the same time!

After a few weeks of following the program my son is more aware of the words in the books we read.  He actually follows the words as I am reading them now and he is starting to point at the words I read.  I am really excited to continue the program and I am looking forward to helping my son further develop his skills.

Holiday Gift GuideYou can find amazing videos of a young child (2 years 9 month old) reading after completing the entire Reading Program and a lot more information about this program on their website HERE. I recommend you visit the website to check out how you can get started with the reading program as well. Wouldn’t this make an amazing holiday gift for your family?
