First Big Step

I encourage parents to have a very positive expectation for your child’s educational future, and the easy reading instructions in my book, PRESCHOOL READING SUCCESS IN JUST FIVE MINUTES A DAY is a great start which most definitely speaks to your child’s future schooling success. Please impart an invisible sense of positive energy to your child that he or she is smart, clever, and will easily understand reading as you slip in easy instruction here and there throughout the day that I fully describe in my book … no big deal…no stress… no anxiety. In fact, my approach is not pedantic, stultified, or boring. Your child will understand and “get it” if you discover the correct (hilarious, energetic, meaningful, plain funny) words to demonstrate the initial phonic sounds you are teaching with an upbeat approach. It will feel so natural to both of you as you impart a very positive attitude to learning in general with reading as a first big step.

A Reading Child’s Future

Illiteracy leads to more political control while devastating a child’s learning future. We need all of our citizens educated and thoughtful. Yes, the mind is a terrible thing to waste. The beginning of national freedom is an educated citizenry, and it starts with reading and it can start early in childhood. If two thirds of children are not reading by the fourth grade, how will they learn, and when will they be taught? …by their equally distressed peers, a sense of failure in school that drags them down, by all of the hi tech distractions, by the internet, by late night comedy shows, by the media, by TV and movies that have destructive messages, by a drug or alcohol culture, WHAT? …What a huge and destructive deficit! Let’s teach them to read as early as possible, so that their God given minds and brilliance are opened to the wonders of this life, to original and creative thinking, to their natural talents, to true beauty, and to  the joys of a well lived and educated life. But this mode of life must start early. We needs all of ours minds working in a productive way to help our country and to help the world.

An Engaged Parent or Grandparent needed for just a few minutes

The many and very positive comments and reviews for my book, Preschool Reading Success in Just 5 Minutes A day have become very motivating to me. The more I read about the dismal literacy rates in this country, the more determined I am to spread this information to as many people as possible. The basic concepts for learning to read are so easy that I need to emphasize that this doesn’t have to be a monumental task to either teach it or for a child to learn it. This is wonderful news. There is no need for so called highly advanced teaching methods, no work books, no DVDs, or other needless concerns. The real need, however, is a highly engaged, energetic and committed in-the-moment parent or grandparent to playfully introduce and teach the basic phonic sounds that have meaning to your child. But it is done in such a silly and stress-free manner and in only a few minutes, that it really isn’t a chore, and even makes connecting with your child more genuinely rewarding.

Parents and Grandparents

At home, it is the parents and grandparents reading to your children and teaching them how to read before they go to school that makes an incalculable difference. The ability to read is your gift to them that will lead to ongoing school and life success. Embrace them in your arms as you teach and read to them.

The ability to read will obviously educate them, but will also give them the exhilarating sense of early success in school which can carry them to future successes.  Reading will become their window to the world that will allow them to engage their imagination and sense of adventure, and to bring inspiration to connect to the larger themes in life. “The child who reads is the child who thinks” is a quotation we can all embrace.

Phonics, vocabulary, and fluency of speech all contribute to their being able to read. Their beginning teachers in school will appreciate the work that you are giving to them now, and they will picture them as highly intelligent and ready to learn. Their comments will go on their record which will follow them all through their schooling years.

As a start, look up some of the animals on the computer or books from the library that they enjoy which will engage and develop his or her awareness…ostriches, flying fish, giraffes, otters, parrots, monkeys etc as well as the suggestions in my book.  Reading ability is expanding her awareness of the world around her. Early childhood learning, and especially reading ability are so important for your child’s future development.

Reading Comprehension

It is a good idea to familiarize your children with the meaning of what they have just read or heard. Start their consideration by asking questions. Who was the most important character in the story, what happened to him or her, how did he change at the end, what happened to him, who was your favorite character, why?

The best book for this is the classic, Charlotte’s Webb though it is heart wrenching, and maybe too sad for very young children. It is about true friendship, loyalty, love, helping others, warmth, sensitivity and selfless love between a pig and a spider with other farm animals and children also part of the story. We all can learn about life from this story.

Read all types of stories to your children where their imagination can run free.  Pinterest has all sorts of book lists you can glance over before your next trip to the library. And also let them consider and express what the story was saying to them.

Teach them to read early…Please let me show you how…

Not Hard To Do

Parents can’t criticize schools for their lack of teaching if they haven’t at least contributed this part to their education at home and pre-kindergarten. PLEASE TEACH them to read now or at least teach then some of the basic letter sounds, and their whole educational life will change. Who knows what is going on in the first early grades of their schooling, but as a parent you will because you have “put in place” these foundational skills. They will not be part of the 2/3rds of the fourth graders who do not know what is going on with reading. Let’s change these statistics, esp. when this isn’t hard to do.
