When a child begins to journey of reading, practice is the most important thing to having success. Once a child starts to learn the wonderful way of blending sounds together to make words, the magic for them has just started and the written language begins to come alive to them, everywhere. That is why I wanted to make my son his own DIY reading lesson cards for learning on the go.
DIY Reading Lesson Cards for Learning On the G0
Before this school year started, I had all intentions of using All About Reading to teach my last child to read, because I absolutely love the All About Spelling, however as I was putting together things for our curriculum, I had the impression that I needed to change this plan and use 100 Easy Lessons to Teach Your Child to Read.
One thing I have learned in these 16 years of pulling together homeschool curriculum for my children is that when you are praying for guidance in your unique child's education, you listen to those little impressions and I'm so glad that I did. He loves it, and is moving through the book with ease, and learning very quickly!
My son loves to write, and practice not only his letters but words he remembers from his reading lessons, or words he tries to sound out on his own. I want to encourage him to keep learning, and to do that at any time, so I wanted to make him some DIY reading lesson cards for learning on the go, like I did for him with the DIY Bible Lesson Cards for Learning on the Go.
These are simple and easy to make.
Using index cards, just nicely write your child's sentences that they are reading in their lessons, being sure to use a black marker, and even marks that they are seeing in their reading lesson, like the line over the ‘e' to let the child know it is a long ‘e' and it says its second sound, or ‘its name'.
Once you are done, laminate the cards. Punch holes in the corner (I like to line them up with a previous one to be sure that the holes match up correctly), and then add it to the ring. You can add more sentences as the reading lessons go on.
You can take these DIY reading lessons cards with you anywhere, allowing your child to practice in the car, in waiting rooms, or even demonstrate his or her learning to a loved one.
Your child will love these lesson cards and will practice their skill again and again, improving their reading speed each time.
