As a parent, teaching your child to read is one of best ways you can encourage them to explore the world around them and set them up for success. You want to raise a good reader, but unless you have a background in education yourself, you may have no idea where to start. If you're looking to foster a love of learning in your little ones, you should know about the apps that help kids learn to read.
According to Baby Center, most children begin reading around age 5. This is because, at this time, a child is developmentally ready to make the connection between letters on a page and the sounds they make. That doesn't mean, however, that you can't start planting the seeds of learning much earlier. Even at 6 months old, babies can enjoy board books with simple words and colorful pictures, Baby Center added.
The idea of teaching your kids to read may give you some anxiety, but fortunately you have plenty of help available at your fingertips. Your favorite app store is loaded with programs geared towards kids as young as 2 years old. Using interactive games, songs and videos, these apps will introduce your kids to letter sounds, sight words, and other important early reading skills. And they can be so much fun for your children that they won't even realize they're learning to read on their own.
So charge up your tablet and download some of these fun reading apps for your little ones. The only down side will be that soon you won't be able to spell things you don't want them hear anymore.
