My teaching method is a self learning approach. I support my son at his pace and introduce for reading through his interests as well as when outdoors noticing words and letters. I spend weekly moment through the week on the reading and encourage a natural love for learning. I use blending with two letters and gradually build to three letter words to familiarise the approach to the phonics. I use resources which have been very effective with his reading ability. I encourage spellings, games, comprehension, rhyming and definitions. I also use matching and building words with magnetic letters, images and real life things. From this I have incorporated his writing skills and worked with him to build on his fine motoring skills. I approach each development of reading at the child's pace as I believe this should be an enjoyable learning experience.
I am a home educator who has spent the past over 3 years teaching my son to read from his shown interest in the alphabet and books. I now support my son with reading at level 3/4 stage with his support of his primary school and throughout his Montessori preschool previously.
