There are many different resources for teaching early readers available on the market. In order to help children to develop reading skills they first need an awareness and understanding of the different letter sounds of the alphabet and english spelling. Therefore, any game or activity involving the introduction or the practise of phonics spelling are useful resources for teaching early readers.
Without a good knowledge of the sounds that different letters and letter combinations make, children must rely on a whole word decoding approach which can work, however, without a good phonetic knowledge this is a very one sided method. Resources for teaching early readers can be games such as board games which highlight letter sounds, card games, verbal games such as ‘I-Spy’ and written activities that practise letter formation and recognition. Some children can struggle with reading for various reasons e.g. lack of sufficient reading practise, specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, or general learning difficulties. They may need spelling help.
In these cases resources for teaching early readers are very important to boost phonetic knowledge to improve word-decoding skills and to practise sight-reading of words that are not spelt phonetically. With plenty of spelling tips, practise of letter recognition and the introduction of phonics in the Reception Year and Year One, using resources for teaching early readers, children at key stage one can progress in their reading and in turn will have fewer problems with reading as they move on to key stage two and beyond. These literacy resources and activities can be obtained through educational catalogues for teachers and for parents.
