save save! Ah,
the joys of learning phonics. For some children, like my eldest, it comes
to them as easily as rain falls in a summer shower. For others, like another
of my children, it is initially as easily understandable as is deciphering
next years's tax codes.
your child doesn't get it the first time, do not despair! Remember, it
might just be that your child has a specific learning style...one that
another approach would help convey the material. But...how can you find
now, you would have had to do all the above research yourself. But here
at Lingstar Learning, I've compiled the following time-saving
useful reading enrichment aids:
Enrichment - Want to help your child make the connection between
any children's book and actual reading? This is what I created to teach
my daughter how to read! Over 300 printable colorful, creative phonics
worksheets and manipulatives (for example, the picture you see above
is from the -ip family, the ship has two lips) that you can customize to
exactly your child's needs, opportunities to focus upon dozens of specific
word families and incorporate them into your child's current interest and
official Comprehensive Phonics Resource
Map - a wealth of sites and data that will cut through the confusion
and send you directly to the information your child needs. Included are
precise pointers to:
of FREE phonics software programs and exercises
of online learning resources (many with a month free trial)
this is not simply a collection of links to various/sundry places online.
I've carefully organized all of these phonics resources into an importable,
categorized favorites list that you can simply read into your browser

your child to read requires more than just rote phonics mastery , of course.
After watching my 4.5 year old daughter struggle to make the connection
between words and concepts, I developed my
own curriculum of teaching her how to read. A combination of encouragement,
printed manipulatives, favorite activities and more, she now understands
how to blend sounds and take the risk of reading new material. This process
was the 3rd method I tried and the one that struck gold. Click HERE
to see how I did it.
