Details about Teaching Reading

How long are daily lessons in All About 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.

How long will it take for my child to become a fluent reader?

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.

How are sight words handled in All About Reading?

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.

Does All About Reading teach reading comprehension?

The ultimate goal of All About Reading is reading comprehension. We cover reading comprehension in every story lesson throughout the program. For complete information and a video, visit How to Teach Reading Comprehension.

My child guesses at words when reading. Can All About Reading help?

All About Reading teaches a word blending procedure that will break the guessing habit. You can read about it in this article.
