Reading is one of the three most basic skills taught in school, along with writing and arithmetic. In order for your child to do well in future school years, it is important to lay a good foundation with the ability to read well.
This Kindergarten phonics program is designed to have any kindergartener competently reading by the end of class. The classes will give the parent instructions for how to help their student go from recognizing alphabet letters to reading words with multiple syllables.
Each lesson is video-based, with instructions for the mothers on how to teach every aspect of basic phonics to their child. All the worksheets needed are provided as printable PDFs on the lesson pages.
Each Phonics lesson is designed for you and your child to complete at your own pace, generally about one week is expected. I have provided many PDF worksheets to help reinforce the teaching concepts, and to give your child exercises to practice these concepts.
Don't worry about the pace that you go through the lessons. Some lessons will be easier for your child, while others may be more difficult. But even as you work through difficult lessons, remember to have fun and enjoy this special time you have to teach your child how to read.
