The main part about reading in bed is getting the kid to read and that means starting with words, then sentences and paragraphs. 

     And finally onto pages, chapters and hopefully onto reading books. Learning to read takes time and a lot of reading, so be prepared to read as often as you can. But as I have said before make sure

you are POINTING at the word you are saying, and most important, the kid MUST be looking at the book and following your finger or pencil. A lot of parents have been told that reading bedtime stories to their children will help the kids learn to read. It has been stated many times that that is one of the best things you can do for you child. 

Then the parents wonder why their kids reading is not all that good. 

     When reading aloud bedtime stories you are improving vocabulary, you are increasing their word knowledge and number of words, which is a very good thing. That is one of the very few things I like about the TV and movies, they increase the vocabulary of the kids. Where do you think swear words come from, if you do not say them yourself. 

To Homeschooling Parents And Parents of Children who are having Problems Learning to Read

Have A look At Three Free Videos About How to Teach Your Child To Read 

     Video 1: Introduction To Montessori Reading.

 Video 2: How To Make Sandpaper Letters. 

          Video 3: How To Teach Reading Using Sandpaper Letters

     As has been said many times before 'a picture tells a thousand words' and these free videos do just that. They are easier to understand as you can see how to make sandpaper letters then how to teach using them.

     Old Disney movies and cartoons are very good at bringing new words to children. Video games are useless at increasing vocabulary as they keep repeating the same lines over and over again. Now back to bedtime stories, when you are reading the stories and the kids are lying in bed beside you, staring mesmerized to the page, POINT to the words as you say them. 

     Then hopefully the kids will associate the sound with the word. And that is what reading is all about.

     For more information about phonics courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
