When a child needs to learn to read by syllables
As a child grows up, new tasks arise for parents, and one of them is how to teach a child to combine letters into syllables and read. You can do this at home, but you need to know some important points that will help you avoid serious mistakes.
At what age do you begin to teach your child to combine letters in syllables
The best way to teach a child is reading when he can:
- speak with sentences, coherently tells about something;
- can hear all the sounds in the word;
- utters all sounds and letters;
- understands spatial movements (top-bottom, right-left).
Therefore, all parents, knowing the level of development of their baby, determine when to start this important process.
Sooner or later all children will learn to read, so it’s important not only to help the crumb to master this skill, but also from childhood to lay love to books and gain new knowledge. The reading child will fantasize, dream, competently write and express his thoughts. From it will grow a harmonious, developed and self-sufficient personality.
The features of training should depend on both age and mood
There are different opinions about the age at which a child is able to learn to read. But no matter how many years the baby is, when you start with the basics of reading, you need to know some points and features.
Some argue that in 3 years the crumb is absolutely ready to learn the letters, explaining this by the fact that the three-year age is a crisis year. At this time, children are interested in everything, they ask endless questions that follow from one another, get to know the surrounding world and absorb everything new like a sponge, and this should be used to teach them the basics of reading. This opinion is not approved by neuropathologists. The brain develops gradually, and by loading those parts of it that are not yet ready to work productively, you can create psychological problems (overexcitability and hyperactivity). Ophthalmologists also warn that excessive visual loads are fraught with nearsightedness, since the muscle responsible for visual acuity is not yet formed.
