With these steps mastered, then reading for fun begins. With the correct book selections and a lot of patience, encouragement and understanding, parents and pre school teachers can speed the learning along with songs, rhyming games and conversations. Many years ago, first grade was the typical grade to begin reading; today, many children enter kindergarten with reading skills already soundly in place.
Make signs with a large capital first letter and smaller case following and post them around the home; Bathroom, Refrigerator, Door, Mirror, Dog's bed, Cat toy, etc. Ask the child every time you pass a sign, "what does that say?" until they are 100% correct. Play games with letters, putting the word of the day on the refrigerator door with magnetic ones, and playing and arranging letters on a table. Write or trace the letters on paper and then have the child think of as many words as he can that have that sound. Play games about animals, food or flowers; asking how many the child can think of that start with a certain letter. Rhyming word games are great learning tools.
Care should be taken to give children worksheets that they are capable of doing. This involves understanding and monitoring the child continually, since the level of attainment of different children would often be quite different. The worksheet should challenge the child but not overwhelm her. If the worksheet is too easy or too repetitive, it may bore the child and she would not be happy. If the activity is too difficult it would frustrate her and she would not like to take up more sheets.
