The makers of The Reading Lesson contacted me and asked me to check out their books. 15 years ago, Nina Levin’s parents wrote a book called The Reading Lesson. The book is a simple, fun program that teaches young children to read in 20 easy lessons. It makes the process of learning to read easy for both parents and children. Her parents wrote the Reading Lesson because they couldn’t find an intuitive and easy program that could teach her and her brother to read in an engaging way. The book is the #2 selling reading program in the US on Amazon, and has a 4.5 star average review. After writing the Reading Lesson, they started developing other educational products that have become very popular with homeschoolers and families worldwide. These products have also gained lots of attention and also have five star reviews – you can see the website here.
I checked out the books and I love them. The www.ReadingLesson.com talks about how it is easy to use and has a few resources for you to use along with the books. I like The Reading Lesson book because it walks you through teaching your kids the letter sounds and how to make them into words. I’ve tried a book very similar to this one but this one is actually made for the kids to sit with you and try to read. I mean the other one was too, but what I love about The Reading lesson is the size of the words and the pictures. Zoe was in kindergarten last year and we as parents learned that pictures are actually part of the learning process, it’s story association, just like reading the entire sentence to learn the word that might be giving you trouble.
I encourage you to follow the Reading Lesson on Facebook www.Facebook.com/theReadingLesson and on twitter @itsreadingtime. In Adittion to the Reading Lesson they also sent me Verbal Math Lessons 1 and 2 and Big Words for little kids. The big words book is just a little above Zoe so I’m going to work with her and get her up to that book and work with her on the two math books. I think it’s never too soon to get your kids ready for math and she did basic math word problems in Kindergarten so I know she’s going to do quite well in those two books. Of course while I’m working with Zoe I’m going to get Miles started as well. He should be reading in no time.
