Teaching Your Four Year Old to Read

 

Before you start teaching your child to read, they need to master certain skills. These are:

  • Knowing the difference between a picture and print

  • Being familiar with books and know that you read from left to right

  • Knowing the upper and lower case letters of the alphabet

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, you would start teaching the sounds that are associated with each letter.

  • You could use blocks with the letters on them and put them together to make words.

  • You could also use cards with letters on them, like flashcards.

  • Work on what sound comes at the start, middle, and end of a word.

  • Practice with consonant-vowel-consonant word flashcards.

Tips on Teaching the Alphabet

A good place to start is with the ABC Song. While you are reading to your child, which should be done at least once a day, point out a letter occasionally and ask him what it is. Pick a letter each week and do activities with something that starts with that letter. For example, ideas for A - D include:

  • make applesauce or art prints with half an apple dipped in paint

  • blow bubbles

  • make cookies

  • make doughnuts from biscuits

Letters can be made lots of ways.

  • Play Do or clay can be rolled into a worm and the letters can be shaped.

  • You can take a roll of cookie dough and either make some letters with it or use cookie cutters.

  • Licorice is another good food to make letters with.

  • You could also buy cheap cereal and glue the pieces on paper where you have written a letter.

Start looking around and you will find lots of ways to form letters and make learning them fun.
