Reading to children from birth is a really good way to teach them to read, as it instills a lifelong love of reading. Sure, they mightn't understand much at first, but they will grow to love snuggling up for a story.
By reading stories to a child in bed at night, showing colourful pictures...making it a lot of fun.....that will win a child over.
As they grow more, you can let them see the words, and you sound them out.In time, they will want more and more.A great way to get the books, go to a second hand store, once your done with the book after many months, donate it back.Don't just tell the story once, you will find that children have many favourites......If this is done, on a daily basis.....a child will love to read.
There is not best method. Children learn in different ways. One method may work well for one child, but not at all for another. You have to try them all out and see which they respond to best.
Read to the,, and then allow them to have a go. Patience is everything.
Make reading to them a regular activity and also let them practise reading aloud to you.
Parents should show by example that reading is enjoyable. It's nice to read with children regularly, take them to the library to choose their own books and visit any local children's literacy groups that are happening locally such as baby rhyme times, etc.
