As you may or may not know, letters and sounds are the basics of reading properly. There are plenty of rules in the English language that applying and often are subject to exceptions. This can really lead to a lot of confusion with young readers. Obviously, you must have already heard of phonics books and worksheets that simplify learning to read. If not, then you should definitely do the research and educate yourself accordingly. It will make all the difference in how well your child will read and have a good understanding of the language.
Some free worksheets are not good quality − the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print grey or speckled − and children tend to notice these things. If you are using the worksheets to educate your child, you may want to choose good quality worksheets that encourage your child to produce good quality work. After all, it's a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in hasn't done the same.
Along with flash cards, magnetic letters are fun and a great teaching tool. Simple words, with good clear sounds and lots of repetition once again, will help the child avoid frustration and keep interest. Once a young child has mastered a word with rhyming ability like "cat" then they will enjoy changing the first letter to sound out blending words such as "bat," "rat," and "fat" with emphasis on how the beginning letters of B, R and F are sounded out.
