Learning Reading at an Early Age

Learning Reading Starts with Phonemic Awareness

Learning reading

Early reading specialist, Randall Klein discovered an important key to teaching children who are learning reading at an early age. He calls it phonemic awareness and says it all starts with isolating the beginning sounds of words. For example, when we consider the word /gold/, we find it’s made up of four distinct and separate phonetic sounds: /g/…/o/…/l/…/d/. For children to understand written and spoken language, they need to be able to recognize each letter sound. Mr. Klein tells us the first thing you need to do is teach your child to recognize and pronounce the beginning sounds of words (like the /g/ in /gold/) in order to truly learn how to read.
