I've recommended many free sites to teach reading on this blog. There are numerous resources available with advice for parents to teach their children to read.
Are you a parent trying to teach a child to read? Are the resources you find online or in books enough? If not, you are not alone. Many parents find it challenging to teach their children to read.
I believe parents make the biggest impact on a child learning to read. Parents lay the ground work by reading to their children, reading with their children, and helping their children find good books. Not all parents want to learn and teach the mechanics of reading.
Parents who want to teach the mechanics of reading can check out a free Parent Phonics Training program from Reading Horizons and my Reading Resources page. I work hard to share helpful information with parents teaching their children to read, so I'm still encouraging you to do what you can to teach your child about reading.
Reading Horizons is my favorite program parents can use to supplement all the ways they already help their children with reading. It teaches readers how to sound out words and learn common words. It's research based and systematic. It's a program I highly recommend.
Last summer I had the opportunity to try Reading Horizon's V5 Online reading program with a few students I tutored. I loved the program. Students could do extra practice at home on their own computers. You can try it free. The program says it's for ages 10 to adults, but I think it would work for eight and nine year olds too.
Reading Horizons v5 7-day trail
Reading Horizons has updated and improved their reading software program for ages 4 to 9 year olds. It's not yet available to the public. I'm getting the opportunity to try it out for 90 days. It's called Discovery. You can learn more about it here. You can contact the company to learn more too.
