Today,more children are learning how to read. This may be because of Reading Head Start. Some experts estimate that one out of every three children is now enrolled in a reading class for one or both of several reasons. Some parents work long hours to make sure that their children learn to speak or write as early as possible. Other parents teach their children to speak and write from birth.
While children who are born and raised in this country are used to learning by seeing and hearing,those who were brought up in other countries learn with their eyes. They need to look up to see what is being read. So when you take your baby or child to the store and show him or her how to buy a pack of gum or a book,he or she will be able to pick up the words and will learn to say them before they understand what you mean by them.
Children also learn by seeing the things they have been told before they can even begin to hear them. If you tell them about their first tooth,and they look at you in wonder,you will be able to tell them everything they need to know about the tooth before they can even speak. The same is true of anything that you want to teach them.
Many parents find it difficult to decide just when children should learn how to read. Many parents think that their children will learn by the time they reach the third grade. While some studies have shown that this is correct,other studies indicate that there are a variety of reasons for learning at different times.
One of the most important ways to determine when children should learn to read is to make sure that they can see and hear before they can learn. Most American schools provide early education programs and some of these programs are specifically designed to help children learn to speak and read well. If a child is not able to hear and see before they begin to speak,it will be difficult for them to hear what is being said to them.
If a parent is worried about their child’s ability to speak and read well,they should consider the possibility of having a reading and speech therapy course taught to them at home. This may be a valuable idea if their child is still learning to speak or to write. and is already able to understand what is being said to them.
