While I’m not technically home schooling, I am doing all I can to make sure my kids know how to read and at least write their name before they start school. J myster has known his alphabet since about 18 months, so I thought it was time to teach that the letters make words and the best way to do that is to teach your child how to sight read. While this technically doesn’t teach “Sounding out a word” you can still practice the sounding out part while you are teaching sight words. Sight words is all about memorization. Just like when you teach the alphabet, your child memorizes the letters.
J Myster has learned 5 words so far and every day I am planning on adding a new word. The best time to do this kind of thing with your kid is when you are sitting around the dinning room table. We do our best “learning” at breakfast and lunch.
I can’t wait to share with you guys what J has learned next week and how many words he’s up to for sight reading. Pretty soon we might be able to put the words together and make sentences!
What things are you working on with your toddler/Preschooler?
