Free Phonics When American Kids Can’t Read

Posted in American kids cannot read, American Reading Scores are bad | Comments Off on Free Phonics When American Kids Can’t Read

 

Our National

Reading Report Card

is Failing Kids!

 

The Nation’s Report Card Shows Terrible Scores For Reading – ONLY 38% of seniors read above grade level and 25% of seniors read BELOW grade level.

 

Honestly, I can’t believe the NAEP even has enough guts to publish it.  The result is THAT bad!

 

Just in case you have been led to believe that the public school Common Core standards are producing reading levels for our children that are going up, that are getting better, think again. 

 

The dreadful results of our children’s reading levels are horrifically alarming and chock-full of present and future dismay.

 

 National Assessment of Educational Progressaverage scores for fourth and eight grade reading are disgusting. Only 34 percent of students were rated reading “proficient.” 

However, the worst part of the results is this: they’re being played by our educational establishment as “school success” instead of being reported for what they truly are:

a national school fiasco in literacy instruction.”

 

 Am I exaggerating? Sadly, no, I’m not. 

 

Look at the results, and YOU DECIDE.  Is this what you want for your child?

 

HERE’S HOW IT ALL BEGINS:

 The latest stats tell us that a whopping 64% of fourth graders are NOT reading at grade level.

 

The news is horrible at the older grades, too. By the time our present-day students complete the 8th grade, just before they enter high school, 66% of them are NOT reading at grade level.

 

That’s the bad news.  Would you like to hear some good news?

 

Our reading problem

is really simple to fix.

 

In fact, our nation’s reading problem is just as easy to fix as it was for a little girl named Candy who started out as the worst reader in her reading group.

Older Child Struggles with Reading Label

Posted in Struggling with Reading Label | Comments Off on Older Child Struggles with Reading Label

 

Kids hate labels.

Labels should

be eliminated!

 

Too often, children become labeled by a teacher or a school system as a student with a learning disability, or with a behavior problem, or with hyperactive tendencies when in reality, the culprit is ineffective teaching.  While this prevails far too often in the public school classroom, we have to make certain that as parents, these kinds of labels and beliefs about our children do not take place in our own homeschools.

 

Marva Collins once said, “We live in a label-conscious society where people are forever trying to categorize and classify each other.  We tend to overuse terms like ‘learning disability,’ ‘developmental disabilities,’ ‘behavior disorder,’ and ‘hyperactive,’ bandying them about until they are stretched beyond validity.  A child who fidgets in his seat isn’t necessarily hyperactive.  Maybe that child is bored.  Maybe that child doesn’t know how to do the work and is afraid to ask for help.  Or maybe that child is just active.”

Many a parent has pulled their child out of an American school to stop such labeling and to give their child all the attention and help that he/she deserves.  One thought each parent needs to hold dear is this:  “Believe in your child!”  We must be absolutely convinced that we will reach our children, that they can learn what they need to know.  We must never give up!

Often, I receive emails from parents explaining to me that their child has reached an older age of nine or ten or twelve, and they still cannot read.  I begin by asking them questions such as, “Has your child gone through a systematic phonics program?   If not, what kind of reading training has he/she had?” 

Most of the time the answer to this question is that the child has received no systematic phonics training, or that the child has been told that he’s slow or just needs more time to learn to read.  Did you know that it takes a minimum of 13 words of praise to counteract one insult that a child hears?  I love explaining to parents that their child does not need more time, but that he/she just needs an effective, systematic phonics approach given daily by a loving, caring, determined parent who believes in their child and in his ability

If only we would take the time to experience and ponder in our minds how much “failure” our child has felt or how many demeaning comments our child has already heard from well-meaning people who know nothing of the power of encouragement coupled with an effective curriculum. 

At Candy 4WAY Phonics we believe in children!  We believe that if parents are given an affordable, step-by-step phonics curriculum and email support from us, that their child will learn to read every word on every page. 

Just like a little girl named, Candy, who’s true story has touched the minds and hearts of so many caring parents this past year, Mom, Dad, your child needs the opportunity to fill in the gaps, to catch up in reading, to learn to read confidently and fluently, to receive the training he/she deserves to be able to read every word on every page.
