Eddie enjoys learning his letters, and though he is still mixing up his Bs and Ds, Ms and Ns, he is enthusiastic and willing to learn, and that's what matters at this stage. His reading might not be perfect, but he's only 4, and he will get there. I know some of the children in his class are more fluent readers, some are less, and we, parents, should do our best to encourage our little ones in this big adventure. If teaching your child to read sounds a bit daunting, there is a very helpful educational tool called Alphablocks.
You might already know about it, if your children watch Aphablocks on TV. But there is also a fantastic Alphablocks Reading Programme available for foundation-aged children, which helps them to develop and progress with their reading skills.
We recently received part I of the reading programme, and have had hours of great fun, going through educational activity-packed magazines and playing with all the extras like stickers, letter tiles, flash cards and finger puppets. You can discover more about the programme, if you read my review of Alphablocks Reading Programme.
Kind people at Alphablocks have offered two Reading packages as prizes for my blog readers.
There will be two lucky winners who will receive a complete Alphablocks Reading Programme (usually worth £39.99 plus P&P).
