Learning to read or even reading skills development is the easy acquisition and subsequent practice of those skills needed to learn the meaning behind written words. For an adept reader, reading literally feels effortless, easy, and almost automatic. In truth, it’s not so much that you’re capable of understanding and interpreting a document when you’ve read it but more that your brain has programmed itself to process such information in a manner that leaves you with only the barest fraction of the basic information that it needs to process for comprehension. This article will help you learn to read and keep reading after learning these basic steps.
To begin, it’s important to learn to recognize the various parts of a word beginning with capital letters, which are commonly referred to as ‘a’, ‘the’, and ‘in’ for example, cat, cats, dog, etc. Next is the capitalization of these letters. All letters have a unique pronunciation that must be recognized before they can be understood; thus, capitalized letters are pronounced uniquely in all languages, even different depending on whether it’s written or spoken. It may sound complicated, but it is essential to know how the different sounds are created.
Next comes recognition of the sounds of these letters as individual sounds. This is where the learning language comes in since our brains are programmed differently depending on what we’re trying to accomplish. As a result, our brain will recognize the most common sounds made by letters like a o, and r which are the easiest for us to recognize as separate from the rest.
For example, most children must first recognize that there are only six sounds represented by the capital letters of the alphabet which are then further subdivided into their diphthong, thong, and threshold sounds represented by soft, sharp, clear, and slightly shrill sounds respectively. Once these are learned, then they are ready to move on to learning other words which are made using the same letters as the more familiar ones. These should not be too difficult since most words, once recognized, will repeat them self without any further help from the learning language.
The next step in this process is to make sense of the emerging literacy. Here, the emerging literacy should be understood as having its own written system which can be recognized, heard, read, and written back to the speaker by the reader. It has the basic elements like phonemes, spelling, sentence structure, grammar, and vocabulary. The phonemes are the letters that make a sound and the spelling is determining which letters will make a sound when pronounced. Finally, there is the grammatical structure of a sentence including the tense and modal verbs that make it a complete and developing whole. And finally, there is the vocabulary, which refers to the items that are used with reading and writing.
The very first thing that should be done is to learn to recognize, and memorize letters. This should be done for children who are learning to recognize and write the alphabet. The reason being is that when a child connects the alphabet to the letters, it is easier for him to connect the new word with the alphabet and to relate the new word to the alphabet. For example, if your child connects the letter A to the word b, he will be able to relate the A to b. Therefore, when your child memorizes letters, it is easier for him to connect the new words with the letters.
If you want your child to learn to read and write, you must start by teaching him the basic skills that are needed. You must teach children early on the importance of connecting the letters to the words and phrases that they are learning. Reading comprehension and phonics are the most essential skills in early childhood education. And through the phonics instruction, children are taught to associate each sound with a letter or a group of letters and as they grow older, they can connect words with images and will be able to solve the problems that they encounter when they use the alphabets.
Once they have been able to recognize and connect words with sounds, the next step is to expand their reading skills. You can teach your children how to read words used in sentences. You can also teach them how to form sentences that have a beginning, middle, and an end. You should also teach your children how to build paragraphs so that they will be able to connect words used in the paragraphs with sounds that they already know and they will be able to solve the problems that they come across when using the words they already know.
