Science of Reading Course for Busy Parents

“Science of Reading…. phonics and more for Busy Parents” is specifically created for parents who have children between the ages of 0-8.  A lot of parents have been given the advice that, one of the ways that their child will learn to read is by “reading to them everyday!”

I wish this was true!

I started this course because I realized there are so many misconceptions about reading among parents. Who am I to give advice on reading? Well, I teach kids how to read at school, and I also taught my boys to read from scratch. They go to FULL JAPANESE SCHOOLS, but both are reading above grade level. How did I teach them to read and write? I have shared a lot on my blog which is centered around literacy, but I’m diving deeper into the Science of Reading in this course… meant for parents.

This course is for you if:

  • Your child is struggling with reading and is guessing the words from pictures most of the time
  • Your child’s teacher has NOT given you information on the phonics pattern your child is working on at school (FYI, most teachers won’t be able to tell you)
  • Your child has been given spelling lists that are based on themes instead of phonics pattern
  • Your child can read, but cannot spell
  • You are panicking because most parents send their kids to phonics class, and you’d rather not

The goal of this course is to improve parents’ understanding of the reading process, and to help parents make informed decisions on the type of support your child may need AT HOME when learning to read and spell

Whether you already have a tutor, planning to send your child to enrichment, or own a ton of phonics books, you will benefit from learning about HOW a child learns to read.  

I will be sharing research backed strategies and tips to support your child at home.

The course is organized in a way that debunks 9 myths that most people have about reading. Each myth includes videos, notes, and resources to guide you that align with the Science of Reading.  There are 24 videos in total, and none of my videos are over 5 minutes long.  It is realistic to watch them during the day.  

Myth 1: It is harmful for children to read early

  • An overview of balanced literacy … and more

Myth 2:  My child will learn to read if you read with them every day

  • Explanation of phonemic awareness, phonological awareness, phonics … and more

Myth 3:  I should start teaching phonics in a-z order

  • Demonstration of successive blending … and more

Myth 4:  The only way to learn sight words is by memorizing 

  • An explanation of Elkonin boxes… and more 

Myth 5:  You should teach phonics patterns in any order

  • A brief explanation of common spelling/phonics rules 
  • Introduction to MY personal scope and sequence of phonics… and more

Myth 6: You need to teach and practice ALL word families

  • Clarifications on how Word Families can be taught

Myth 7:  You need to spend lots of money to teach phonics successfully

Myth 8: The only way to learn to spell is by memorising and writing each word out many times 

  • An explanation of word Sorts, “Words Their Way” and my personal sample schedule

Myth 9:  Reading books will teach your child how to read 

  • Explanation of the goals of reading regular books, decodable books, bridging books 
  • I will be sharing my decodable books!

I am a strong believer that the more the parents educate themselves on HOW their child learn, the more involved they will want to be in their child’s literacy development. And in turn, the more the child will benefit.  This is certainly my approach to supporting my two youngest ones at home.  I have a strong desire to keep learning because of them. And I’m sharing everything with YOU.

If you follow me on Instagram, I share a lot of writing tips.  I am saving my reading tips for a specially created Facebook group just for this course. Feel free to ask questions, share videos, and celebrate our successes. 

The entire course is $50 Sg until December!

The price will go up after. Overseas parents can also transfer by PayPal.
