Details about Teaching Reading
We recommend spending about 20 minutes per day on reading lessons, but you can adjust this recommendation for early readers or older remedial students. In addition, we recommend reading aloud to your child for 20 minutes per day. Learn more in this article.
Fluent reading takes practice. In fact, your child may need to read a word thirty times before he can read it without sounding it out. With this in mind, All About Reading uses a variety of methods to help children get the practice they need, including activities and games, letter tile demonstrations, fluency pages with words, phrases, and sentences, and fully decodable readers. You will also spend a few minutes each day with the word cards, which help you track the words your child has mastered and those for which he needs ongoing practice. We also include a variety of exercises designed to help your child work on reading with accuracy, meaningful expression, and natural phrasing.
In the All About Reading program, our goal is to minimize the number of sight words your child needs to memorize, while maximizing his ability to successfully master these words. Learn more about our approach in this article on sight words.
All About Reading teaches a word blending procedure that will break the guessing habit. You can read about it in this article.
