Some tips for you to teach your children how to read

Tip #1: Teaching the alphabet letters and their sounds at the same time 
The previous researches have shown that learning the alphabet letters and their sounds at the same time is the best way for children to learn the alphabet. In one research, 58 nursery children were selected randomly to get directions in learning letter’ names and sounds,or letter’ sounds only. The research’ outcome is the same with results of past researches which shows that   most children could learn how to read the letters. [1]

when teaching your children how to read letters, tracing letters slowly 
with their index fingers when saying their sounds at the same time. For instance, when teaching letter "A", you could say that:"The letter A makes the /A/ (ah) sound."

Tip #2: always emphasize and remind children to read from left to right and from top to bottom.
This above is quite basis for adults, but children do not know about it. This is reason why some children read from right to left instead. When teaching your children how to reach, please always highlight this point to them.

Tip #3: Teach final consonant blends first.
For example, Teaching final words like “at” and “and” can help children learn easily other words with same rhymes. For "at", you can have: Lat, PatMat, Cat, Sat, Bat, Spat, Chat, For "and”: Sand, Band, Land, Hand, Stand, Bland, Brand, Grand, and so on...

Blends can be taught for children when children have learned the sounds of some consonants and short vowel. No need to wait until your children has mastered at all the letters’ sounds. Learning reading is a long process, but it’s not so difficult for your children. With logical steps, a two yearold child can learn how to read, and older children even can learn more.
