In order to teach reading skills to a child, one needs the right materials and a good deal of patience. For small toddlers and kindergardeners, the trick is to establish a curriculum of fun and attention-getting exercises. Many parents and educational leaders teach phonics to younger reading students because the process stimulates the cognitive centers of the brain.

For elementary students, the challenge is to teach reading skills without frustrating them. At this time, many children respond well to one-on-one teaching, as it allows them to feel safe throughout the learning process. Questions can be easily answered by the parent regarding difficulties with beginning grammar and spelling.

Teach Reading Skills the Biblical Way

If the Bible is a part of your family's faith, a good idea is to teach a child reading while using stories from the book itself. If the kid is not old enough to read directly from the Bible, then storybooks with condensed dialogue and story narration can be purchased. By the time the child is ready to pick up the book herself, she will be familiar with all the beloved tales and morality stories already.

If the child is having any trouble with reading and writing, it is up to the parent to do a lot of research and find the best teaching method for mild to extreme learning disabilities. Sometimes it is not the student's ability to learn per se. Many times a child is not stimulated or challenged enough to keep his level of attention and focus up.
