Q: How do I know if my child is ready for the Children Learning Reading program?
The Children Learning Reading program is developed for children between ages of 2 to 6. It was developed by two parents (Jim & Elena) who needed a simple, step-by-step solution that would work to teach even 2 year old children to read. The only requirement to begin with our program is that your child should be able to speak clearly.
Q: How much time do I need to spend teaching my child to read?
Because our Children Learning Reading program is designed to make it possible to teach even very young children to read, the lessons are simple to teach and are super effective at teaching children to read and helping them develop superb phonemic awareness skills. Developed with small children in mind, our lessons typically take only 5 to 7 minutes to complete, and many lesson actually take less than 5 minutes. The lessons are kept short to make it palatable with small children, and we suggest doing lessons 2 to 3 times daily. Typically, parents need to spend around 10 to 15 minutes each day working with their child on our lessons.
Q: Can we spend longer than 15 minutes each day learning to read?
By all means, of course you can! Each family and each child is unique, and what we typically find is that very young children are HIGHLY motivated learners, and will often times ask the parents to do the lessons and desire to spend more time learning. Don't forget, learning is FUN for children.
Q: Can I use your program to teach older children to read?
Our program is designed with young children in mind. However, the techniques
and teaching methods of our reading program are appropriate for all ages to
develop fluent reading and decoding skills, as our program is keenly focused
on developing phonemic awareness - a skill that's critical to fluent reading.
Our original goal was to teach our own very young children to read,
so the lessons are designed to be simple and short at the start, and we've
found it to be extremely effective with young children. However, the
methods and techniques of our program will teach anyone to read, because the
key to reading is developing phonemic awareness, and that's exactly what our
program helps to accomplish.
Q: Does my child need to know the alphabet before starting the Children Learning Reading program?
No, your child does not need to know any of the alphabet, or have any prior knowledge of letters or letter sounds. Our program will teach it all to your child in a logical and sequential order that makes learning fun and enjoyable. The goal of our reading program is to take children from not even knowing the alphabet to being able to read with speed, accuracy, and fluency.
Q: Do you have physical books that you can ship? Or is it only available as a digital download?
Our program contains a large number of contents including numerous e-books, MP3 audio clips, and is available for immediate download. Because of the large number of contents contained in our program, it is only available for digital delivery in a download format. This allows for immediate access, and it also significantly cuts down on cost, and eliminates shipping and handing costs as well.
If you ever lose your downloaded material, just let us know, and we'll set you up with a new download right away. Even if you need to re-download a few years down the road, just send us an email, and we'll setup a fresh download for you.
Q: What's the difference between the standard and premium versions of Children Learning Reading?
The Standard Package contains everything (all the books and mp3 audio files) that you need to successfully teach your child to read. The Premium Package contains everything the standard package has plus the following:
- Children Learning Reading video edition
- Pre-set printouts for stage 1 lessons
- Pre-set printouts for stage 2 lessons
- Stage 2 Rhymes
The extra contents of the Premium Package are meant to make it easier for you, as the parent and teacher, to prepare for and to work through the lessons with your child. So we do recommend the Premium Package.
