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.
Reading is key to all academic success. Let me repeat this! Reading is key to all academic success! It can either set a solid foundation for all future success, or if not mastered at an early age, can cause frustration and anxiety in a child. It is our goal to help children everywhere become confident in Reading and become life long learners who succeed in school and in life. Start your child/students reading early. We at the Adventures of Scuba Jack are here to help do this in a fun, engaging way!
After being read to for a year or so, children will want and even pretend to be reading the words themselves. Usually they have picked up a word or two by memory, and it will be a good time to introduce flash cards. Preschoolers can handle about 3 flashcards at a time and once they have a good comprehension of those 3, then 2 more can be added. This method is called "chunking" and is very successful. Repetition is important, and testing the meaning of the word in conversation with the child.
