You can teach your child to read very effectively! I used the phonograms to teach my first two children to read over eleven years ago. When I had an unexpected child 4 1/2 years ago I was excited about another chance to teach a child to read using the phonograms. Three weeks ago, she started reading and has been improving remarkably as she learns more phonograms and reads more and more. Read about this at my blog http://teachingellatoread.wordpress.com.
Going into the computer world after 7 years of teaching elementary school allowed me to create a CBT that can be used to teach children to read using the phonograms. I've always believed in the phonograms, but teaching my daughter how to read using them has given me a renewed belief.

Personally teaching my children to read have been three of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Watching the excitement they experience as they learn to read is priceless!
