Fun, Quick Ways to Teach Children to Read!
We must believe that children have unmatched learning abilities because a lot of evidence we have seen in their daily lives can memorize advertisements, talk when we talk to other people, and absorb the words we say. In his book ‘How to Teach Your Baby to Read’, Glen Doman said that basically the abilities of children, especially toddlers, are extraordinary. In fact, said Doman, the brain of a child who had half done surgery Hemispherectomy (removing the physical half of his brain) could have the same ability as a child whose brain is intact and normal. Actually, in the Doman method, teaching reading to children under five is easy and simple. It’s just that it’s so easy and simple that we often ignore, delay, and underestimate it so that finally the time is over and it’s too late. Easy and simple, but that does not mean it can be “arbitrary”. There are things that need to be done and important to do, which of course is so that the goal of teaching reading to children is achieved with satisfactory results.
Do not make children become bored by advancing too fast, advancing too slowly, and giving too many tests – Don’t force the child, whatever the shape – Don’t get tense, so you better delay if the atmosphere doesn’t support both you and the child – Don’t teach alphabet, but teach him the words
Cheer up and make your child’s mood happy and comfortable receiving “lessons” from you – Always create new ways. Remember, however, bad the way you teach, it is almost certain that he will learn more than not being taught at all.
Glen Doman Method (Phase I)
It is better to delay teaching your child about letters because the smallest element of a language is a word, not a letter. The word form is concrete, while letters are abstract. Meanwhile, teaching children will be easier on concrete things, not abstract things that make them think too deeply about whatever you teach. One easy and simple way to teach children to read through word recognition is to use the Glen Doman Method. Consider the following steps; 1. Create 15 words divided into 3 sets of cards in the form of cardboard and markers. Each consists of a Category A Set, a different Category B Set and Category C Set 2. Example, use the theme names in family members in Set A (father, mother, aunt, grandfather, grandmother), fruit names in Set B ( apples, bananas, guava, oranges, durian), and names of animals in Set C (chickens, ducks, geese, fish, horses) 3. Take one of the front cards / first stack of cartons in Set A, specify (read) and invite child imitates it. Remember, there is no need to explain the meaning of what the child reads – no more than one second, take the card from the back and do it like the first one – watch the child’s face when saying a word, observe the words he likes and who don’t – don’t ask the child to repeat the words we read before – after reading five words, stop this lesson. Hug your child and praise him by showing you are proud of what he did 4. On the first day of the lesson, do Set A three times (3x) 5. The second day do Set A = 3x, Set B = 3x 6. Third day Set A = 3x, Set B = 3x, and Set C = 3x 7. The fourth day through the sixth is the same as the third day – each word is read at a maximum of 15-25 times. After that much, the word must be replaced. How, after the sixth day take 1 word from each Set and replace it with a new word – every set that you read is completed immediately randomized, this is so that the child cannot guess the sequence of words – never repeat the word you have read, so it is not wrong You mark each word that you have read in pencil. This sign can also be used as a benchmark for how many times we read this wordchild health, Child nutrition, child psychology, Education kid, Guided Lessons, kid sports
