Children Learning Reading is a super simple and effective, step-by-step program that helps parents teach their children how to read. Check out this video with Jim and Elena’s kids reading!!
Personally, I’ve found the program easy to use. The program is a PDF download, stage one has 225 pages, stage 2 an additional 97 pages. Tons of bonus features including mp3 letter sounds, rhymes and lesson stories you can print out. In each stage the first pages are very helpful for the teacher. (me!) Including tips on how to get your child to cooperate! Motivation tips, praise and encouragement, seriously, this book has it all. I know this because I am ONE of THOSE people that just skips to the lesson plan. Yup and was greeted with this qoute:
I know you’re anxious to get started, but I hope you did not skip all the way from the start to here! If you did, please go back and start from the beginning. If you must skip because you’re too anxious to get started, then please at least read these sections:
• The Importance of Blending
• Smooth Blending and Choppy Blending
• The Importance of Repeated Practice and Exposure
• The First Steps
• How to Teach Reading and Present Lessons
So I went back and read the first pages. Alice and I are on the letter C. We are still having a hard time tracing the letters. Alice really, REALLY wants to scribble BUT as she scribbles she says “A”. We use chalk on her chalkboard and she will scribble and say “Pink A”. I am okay with that, it’ll come. Now as far as sounding out letters? GOT it!! Words?? Oh yea!! Alice can pick out words like CAT, AT, APPLE (and TONS MORE!!)!!! She’s only TWO!!!!
This program is challenging and fun!! We continue to work everyday. I put words together on her magnetic board and Alice reads them to me. I read books to her everyday using the tips that Children Learning Reading Program has provided and Alice will parrot back to me. She’s so SMART!!!
I highly recommend this program to everyone with kids and this would be an fantastic addition to any home school program!! Alice and I give Children Learning Reading Program 4 very enthusiassssssssstic thumbs way up!!!
