Is your child expressing interest in reading? Do you want to develop a young reader but are unsure of how to do it? Is your child halfway through kindergarten and unable to read simple words without memorizing or guessing?
With Reading.com you hold the power to be the best reading teacher your child will ever have.
To start, your child will develop a strong foundation in letter recognition, letter-sound knowledge, and other pre-reading skills. You will guide them as they practice writing letters, develop phonemic awareness, and deepen their understanding of letter sounds through interactive games.
In this phase, your child will use their letter-sound knowledge to begin blending letters together to read words. Your child will become adept at using our sound sliders to support them in decoding words with short vowel sounds and both slow and fast consonants.
Once your child has a foundation in word-blending skills, it’s time to read books! Our co-read format will ease your child into book reading in a supportive way. Together you will read fun and engaging stories, reveal hidden pictures, and check for understanding by answering comprehension questions.
As your child begins reading more advanced, multi-line text and graduates from co-read books, they’ll need the support of advanced decoding skills. In this phase, your child will learn about long vowel sounds, digraphs, and irregular sight words, as well as how to approach common types of punctuation.
In this final phase of reading development, your child will learn to read smoothly and accurately by expanding their sight word knowledge, vocabulary, and exposure to more complex text. Becoming a fluent reader will enable your child to understand and enjoy books, which is key to developing a lifelong love of reading!
