So how do you

 

teach a child TO READ

 

who cannot read?

 

 

Well, let’s look at the story of a real little girl who couldn’t read and find out how she learned to read every word on every page.

 

The story begins in the life of a real little girl named Candy. 

 

Read Candy’s True Storyand remember, if your child cannot read, your child can learn to read every word on every page, just like Candy.

If My Child Can’t Read, is He Learning Disabled?

Posted in child reading problems, my child can't read | Comments Off on If My Child Can’t Read, is He Learning Disabled?

 

It Happened Again.

 

You Saw the Report Card.

 

He’s Below Average in Reading.

 

You’re worried. You don’t know what to think. You don’t know what to do.  

 

You want to trust the teacher when she says, “Wait a while!”

 

However, you don’t trust that “waiting awhile” is really going to do the trick.  

 

Your child is getting older every year, not younger, and that window of opportunity to learn to sound out words is quickly slipping away.

You see more and more of these types of comments on your child’s report card:

Your child has difficulty distinguishing sounds in words.
Your child needs to increase his speed and comprehension in reading.
Your child is not able to blend short words using the vowels without assistance.
Your child is not learning to attack words independently.
Your child’s reading is jerky, hesitant,irregular, slow.
Your child does not comprehend what she reads.
Your child is not interested in books or reading.
Your child cannot read to follow directions.

Or Your child brings home notes that say any of the following:

Your child cannot recognize sight words.
Your child needs a lot of repetition and practice in order to retain reading vocabulary.
Your child still confuses words that look alike.
Your child’s reading is not yet automatic.
Your child cannot read his sentences back.
Your child has difficulty distinguishing sounds in words.
Your child has not developed a mature reading vocabulary.
Your child confuses sounds.
Your child has difficulty remembering the spelling of non-phonetic words.
Your child cannot spell.

  

 So what’s next? How are you supposed to know what to do?

  

 I know this may sound trite, but have you tried systematic phonics?

  

 I’m not talking about the type of phonics that the teacher is telling you that your child is “already getting.”

  

I’m not talking about the type of reading instruction that teaches your child to memorize whole words from a word wall and then throws in a little bit of phonics.

  

I’m talking about systematic, phonics first, step-by-step phonics – the kind of phonics that does not force children to memorize hundreds of whole words from the Dolch Sight Word List.

 

I’m speaking about the kind of phonics that was still around when all the John Boy Walton’s were growing up.

  

It’s a fact, children who lived just prior to and through the Great Depression learned to read using a systematic, phonics-first curriculum in which they learned all their letter sounds, vowel sounds, and every other possible phonogram, and then they learned to blend all those letter sounds together , from left to right, in every word on every page.

 

Those were children who did not have to guess at words because they knew how to easily sound out words they had never seen before?

 

Well, you say, “phonics curriculums are fine for those parents who can afford them, but I don’t have $200 to $300 to spend for lessons and charts and readers and flashcards.”

 

The folks at Candy 4WAY Phonics understand this dilemma, and that’s exactly why we offer a Systematic 4WAY Phonics Curriculum that includes everything the high-priced phonics curriculums include such as: daily, fun, systematic phonics lessons, phonics charts, phonics readers, phonics drill, phonics flashcards, and so much more for less than $10.

 

 

That’s correct! Don’t let the price fool you! You really will receive all of the above for just $9.97.
