As you can imagine, trying to learn this purely cognitively, relying on visual and auditory memory is very daunting and limiting. We simply have to help our children to develop a sense of owning words, sounds and letters; helping them to experience the feeling of being in control of the written word. Using movement, rhythm and rhyme in fun activities opens up all the channels of learning in the brain.
When we teach using correct stages of development and enhance focus of attention and memory through enjoyment, we get whole brain learning. And that is learning that lasts! That's the best way to teach reading.
