Hanson Reading BEGINNER HOW TO READ GUIDE 1 Pre-Reading Skill: Learning the Letter Names [My Page Your Page format]
Children learn more efficiently when terms referring to letters are used consistently. Learning the difference between the NAMES of letters and the SOUNDS that letters make is one of the biggest areas of confusion for beginning readers.
New readers need to have the knowledge they have acquired, regrouped (categorized) more precisely to reduce confusion and to level the road to success as they begin to learn how to read. Success motivates more willingness to take the next step especially when working with their own parent.
This book is designed for you to use the left-hand page as your child looks at the right-hand page: My Page, Your Page!
Note: The font that “children” use and see on their page is most often the Lynne Hanson Font, which was designed to appear the way Hanson Reading teaches children to print. When a letter is in quotation marks, it means to say its NAME, “ABC” = ay, bee, see, NOT its SOUND. Later, when the children are learning Chart 2, the letters in slash marks, indicate- to say its SOUND. /ā /, /buh/, /kkk/, / duh/, /ē / etc.
HOW TO READ Guide 1 highlights important aspects of teaching your own child to read. The tips Lynne Hanson covers includes:
GIVE A SALES PITCH
TELL THE GOAL
SET A CONSISTENT TIME
SET SOME LESSON EXPECTATIONS
GIVE POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT WITH CONCRETE ITEMS
SET LESSON GOALS, SO YOUR CHILD OVERACHIEVES
KEEP YOUR WORD
MASTER EACH CONCEPT
The Hanson Reading Phonics Chart System has been designed to move from one Chart to the next as quickly as possible without rushing the child. That means lots of practice. If you dibble dabble and don’t help your child master each Chart quickly, to your child, the next Chart may be just an idea of torture without reward, and your child will want to quit. Learning to read is too important to quit.
