Teaching Your Child to Read (My Friend Morgan’s Advice)

My great friend Morgan is visiting this week from Sugar Jones’ neck of the woods- California!  I’ve seen her about once a year since she moved from NC, and we are thrilled to have them here!  Morgan and I were talking about homeschooling, since she is homeschooling her kindergarten daughter.  Morgan mentioned that her daughter is reading on a second grade level. When I marveled about this fact, she told me her secret:

Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lessons

Teach Child Read 100

Morgan is actually the third person who has mentioned this book to me in a conversation about her child’s extraordinary reading skills.  Morgan says this book is so easy to use, and it’s broken up into 15 minutes lessons that you can do at any time.

She said that after a few months, her daughter was asking to do lessons every day!  Lately, Little Pea has been asking me to spell things for her, and trying to rhyme and sound out words.  I really think I’m going to get this book and see if she blossoms!

So, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lessons worked for my friend Morgan, do you have any secrets to teaching your kids to read?

  1. I bought this book but never ended up using it – my daughter’s reading ability took off on her own, I couldn’t believe it. She’s in 1st grade and reads at a 3rd grade level. And she just loves reading 🙂


  2. Both of my children now (24 and 30 – yikes) were reading at the age of 3. I used a program called “Mister Light” by a company Grolier who also sold encyclopedias. I taught both of them using that program. Funny how the different personalities of your children gravitate to what becomes a passion. My son in 6th grade was reading at a sophomore college reading level and to this day has one if not two books with him he’s reading. My daughter read well, was in the “Who’s Who of High School Students” graduated with a 4.2 gpa from High School, but never found that passion to read, only did it if she had too. If you can find “Mister Light” on Ebay or come across one at a garage sale, it’s a Super teaching tool.

    We LOVE this book – I saw it recommended in January and we decided to give it a shot. My 5yo thought it was really cool to work on reading, while big bro & sis were at school … and it astounded me how well he’s doing. He is eager to do the lessons, sometimes getting through 2 or 3 at one sitting and when I tell him it’s reading time, he races to get his book. I’ve recommended this to a ton of friends and family – I’m so glad we tried it.

    Wow! That is great! Little Pea (4) is already trying to sound out words, so I am definitely getting it for her!
