Teach Your Child to Read in 60 Days.
Ledson, Sidney
A sixth day program is outlined in this book to enable parents to teach preschoolers to read. It is based on the experiences of the author as he taught his two young daughters to read. Enthusiastic praise and material rewards are suggested to strengthen motivation. Reading games are suggested to generate fun and induce frequent repetition of the material to be learned. Arguments are presented to support the readiness of most preschoolers to learn to read. The approach suggested starts with teaching the sounds of the letters as a means of beginning letter recognition, initial utilization of small letters and the phonetic reading of spelled words with the first three and four letters. Later in the instruction time sight words are introduced. Oral reading is stressed during the first sixth days. Suggestions are given for continuing instruction through 120 days, including a recommendation to introduce silent reading during this period. (MKM)
