Children are in the most active stage. They like to play and mostly cannot stand to stay still. They will do anything they want. That is why teaching children to do something is really quite a job. Teaching your kids to read is a must because they need to learn from early age.
There are several ways in teaching your kids to read. You can try them all or just some of them to get succeed in teaching reading. The first way you can try to do is reading it to them. You can start by reading some interesting stories that can grab their attention. Do not forget to make them see the sentences together with you because it can make them use to see alphabets and sentences. Later on, when you are teaching them to read by themselves or to write, they already have the background knowledge and are already familiar with the shape of the alphabets.
The next way you can try for teaching your kids to read is by asking them some questions. You need to prepare a book containing several pictures of many things that the children can find in everyday life. In the bottom of each picture there is the name of the thing. So here is how you should do it. Firstly, you can ask them a question such as “where is the dog?”, then what your children need to do is to find a picture of the dog. By doing that, they are automatically seeing the picture along with the name meaning that they will use to see the alphabets and at the same time learning what is the name of a thing. It helps them to increase their vocabulary mastery. When your children are at the age of five, you can ask them the more complicated ones such as asking them about a content of a story you have read.
