If every progress report from your child's teacher makes you panic, you dread nightly reading time more than potty training, and you feel helpless about your child's reading and spelling...
Let’s get real for a quick second, exhausted parent friend. If we sat down for a mom to mom chat, would you tell me…
It's not your fault that your child is struggling to read and write
Which is why you need concrete and fun tools that make reading time successful for your child and pleasant for you.
Six sets of printable activities to build your child’s foundational reading skills in phonological awareness.
But what in the world is
I’m so glad you asked.
Phonological awareness is:
Reading is code of letters based on speech.
Phonological awareness breaks the code.
You can help your child.
You just need the right tools and support.
I’m Anne and I know a little something about teaching kids to read.
Hi, I’m Anne! I a former teacher and mom to three kids.
When my daughter was struggling to read and spell, I got the run around from her former school. $3000 of private learning evaluations later, she got a dyslexia diagnosis.
Shocker: my two Master’s degrees in education didn’t cover how to teach struggling readers. So just like you, I had to figure it out.
I dusted off my researcher hat and learned how important phonological awareness is for learning to read. And now I’m here to help your child and you.
Why doesn’t my child’s teacher do this?
Sadly, the neuroscience behind learning to to read hasn’t made its way into most teacher preparation programs. It’s not the teacher’s fault.
There are lots of teachers trying to learn about phonological awareness and change things in their schools.
Should my child just memorize sight words?
The brain doesn’t learn words through memorization. Brain imaging has shown that memorizing is inefficient. Learning to hear the sounds in language is more effective.
How much time is this going to take?
Not much. Invest 10 minutes in printing out the activities once a week. Then pop into our Facebook group and watch a video for 5-10 minutes. Last, spend another 5-10 minutes daily to work on the activities with your child.
The truth is it takes only a little time to get started, but once you do, you’ll save so much time. Your child will soon be begging to go to the library like my daughter and reading time will no longer be exhausting.
Will this really work for my kid?
This will work for 95% of children who can learn to read. The truth is reading will be a struggle for some children with intellectual or cognitive disabilities.
But, my daughter is dyslexic and autistic and has ADHD. So if she’s experiencing success, it’s very likely your child will, too.
Plus, you get access to a private Facebook group with yours truly. I will answer your questions and tweak the printables if you run into problems.
Isn’t all this ink going to cost a ton of money to print?
You can pick and choose the activities you do each week. You don’t need to print them all at once.
You should really look into HP Instant Ink. For $5 a month, you can print 100 full-color pages. There are other plans available.
What’s your refund policy?
Due to this being a Facebook support group plus the printables, I’m unable to offer refunds for this product.
But I will address your concerns and support you! Helping children and their parents and teachers is my jam.
