Reading For Life Learning Center
Out of all the world’s written codes, English is the hardest to learn to read and write. It possesses a complexity that baffles teachers, parents and children alike. No wonder homeschooling parents find themselves frustrated trying to teach their children this fundamental skill!
Fortunately, there’s a new scientific way to understand and organize the English spelling code. For the first time EVER in the history of English, instruction is being given in a SOUND-TO-PRINT ORIENTATION. The inherent logic of our alphabetic code is revealed when we start with what every child already knows: the sounds of their native language.
This method is called ‘Linguistic Phonics,’ and I’ve been using it to teach several children to read this past summer, in my learning center Reading For Life. I’ve started a few beginners out on this precious journey, and I’ve helped older students who were struggling and losing confidence in themselves. I’ve gotten fantastic results in all cases.
I’m taking on new students and creating group classes right now, but I realize there’s a limit to how many students I can help personally. I want to get this knowledge out there to homeschooling parents so many more children can learn to read ease-fully, and become confident lifelong readers!
In this 3 hour workshop parents will learn the basics of teaching their children to read and write with the Linguistic Phonics approach. Through interactive exercises, participants will learn to train their children’s phonemic awareness as they develop strong code knowledge. They’ll learn how to develop the 3 reading subskills, for whatever age/level their child is learning at. Parents will learn how ‘spelling variation’ and ‘code overlap’ is dealt with as they themselves “discover” the patterns in the code.
Participants will be able the peruse the literacy games and activities I’ve created and collected (ideas are for stealing). I'll also have code charts available to take home by donation.
Bring a potluck dish to share during our ½ hour lunch break!
