What's important for parents to recognize is the importance of reading. Without this basic skill, there are huge obstacles and limitations that threaten the success of any child. And, as we are not all teaching professionals, we may be limited to our teaching skills. Therefore, we as parents, trying to guide our children properly through life, should be using the various tools that can and will improves on the life of the child.
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.
Write each letter of the week's spelling words. Get your scissors and cut each letter into its own card. Now the fun begins. Pull out the letters for one word and mix them up. Kids can then move the letters around until the spelling is correct. If you have a bell, let them ring it when they think the answer is correct. Are they too good at the game? Set a timer for each word to increase the difficulty.
