- Is your child refusing to read a school reading book, or falling behind the rest of the class with reading?
- Is your child managing reading, but struggling to write much, or spell words correctly?
- Would you like to teach your child to read?
- Have you received a report that suggests your child is struggling with sound segmentation or Auditory Processing?
I have written this short book, to address these issues: it is about teaching children to read! Simple, and with lots of practical examples, it empowers parents to play a ‘key’ role in their children’s learning. The result of this sound-based system of teaching reading, is that a child’s writing and spelling will improve as well.
My system is called ‘Write2read’, because that is what we do: we practise writing sounds, so that children will find them easier to read!
How is this Book Different?
Write2Read is a simple, structured course, which makes sense to children who struggle with reading. My book demonstrates how parents can set aside the school reading book initially, and focus on the basic skills and knowledge required for reading, through creative and fun tasks.
It explains why these creative activities appeal more to reluctant readers, who will participate more willingly. It illustrates in detail, how using coloured sticky notelets, the write2read Task Sheets and games, will improve recognition and memory skills, ease anxiety and build confidence.
How does this Improve a Child’s Ability to Read?
When children have worked through the Task Sheets, they will be ready to read the appropriate ‘Adventures in Bessiebuss Book’. Working through the sheets, makes the words familiar. Once they have completed the first set of Task Sheets, they are ready to read ‘Off to The Farm’.
This relationship between the Task Sheets and the reading books is explained in more detail, in the final section of this book.
