Teach Preschoolers to Read

I am so excited to share Reading the Easy Way – my first curriculum! This reading program worked so well for my Preschooler I decided to package it and offer it to you! Here is what others are saying about Reading the Easy Way:

Sarah from Illinois says:
I've been doing your reading program with the kids and we love it! We are on week 5 and my 2 year old is reading too! Last year, I started the "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons." It started off going great but half way through by 4 year old was getting so frustrated and was dreading the lessons. I had to stop because she was developing such a negative attitude of reading. When I started "Reading the Easy Way" it was just what we needed to boost her confidence and make reading fun for her. Thank you for taking the time to create that. I know it has really made a big difference for my 4 year old!
Andrea says:
LOVE this! We've really enjoyed the preschool program this year! 
Eddie says:
We're almost halfway through Reading the Easy Way and my sidekick is BEGGING to do this every day! I see that you've got another reading program in the works - any idea when it might be ready? I'll happily be your first customer! Seriously, thanks so much - he's such an enthusiastic participant and we can play the games over and over again.
B says:
We are currently working through Reading the Easy way and my daughter is LOVING it and all the fun activities!
Shonda says:
The format was engaging and super easy to use! I like when everything is all planned out for me!
Jackie says:
I love that this curriculum is easy to use.  Everything is done for me. Lesson plans are easy to glance over quickly and prepare
See Reading the Easy Way Reviewed here:
  • The Usual Mayhem - “This program has taken his reading to a whole new level, quickly and in a way that was effortless”
  • 3 Dinosaurs – “Coloring by sight word is something really easy to do and nice review for everything.”
  • This Reading Mama – “Beth has organized the activities in a fun and playful way, which is very important to preschoolers (and moms, too)”


Reading the Easy Way - Preschool Reading Progam

In just 15 minutes a day / 5 days a week, this program will have your child doing fun activities, playing games, and reading.  The program adds 4 new words every week and has 9 reinforcement activities to combine fun and repetition to have your child enjoying reading in no time! Here is a sample of what you will get:

Ages: 3-6 Reading the Easy Way Preschool
This program is based on the Preschool Dolch Word list and I used it successfully with my 4 year old. But you know your child best – if they are showing an interest in reading and know their alphabet it’s the perfect time to introduce! It was also incredibly helpful to cement these words with my 1st grader who did not have the repetition of doing this program earlier!

What’s Included:
  • 12 Week Lesson Plan (little prep with clearly labeled sheets!)
  • Roll & Read Game / Flashcards
  • Trace! Read! Stamp!
  • Sight Word Coloring
  • Word Search
  • Peanuts to Elephant Game
  • Matching Word Round-Up Game
  • Sight Word Bingo (2 versions)
  • Swat the Fly Game
  • 8 Preschool Readers


Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Words Included

This product has been designed to work with all 40 of the following sight words from the Dolch Pre-Primer list:
a, and, away, big, blue, can, come, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow and you.

Weekly Activities At-A-Glance – For those of you who are more visual (like I am). Here is a sample of what you would do on a weekly basis. The included lesson plans go into more details. image

    What a great packet you've made! I hope you have lots of sales--you definitely deserve it!

  20. We don't have a favorite yet, but we do visit the library regularly. I am starting preschool with my 3 year old next week and this would be great to incorporate into our lessons.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We read a lot, but I really like a book I bought for $7.99 at TJ Maxx. 501 TV-Free Activities for Kids. Just a good resource to change things up, all the while learning!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't have a favorite guide per se. I'm fairly eclectic. I pull from all kinds of resources. I've been at this a while and have decided I need some fresh materials. I found you via Pinterest and love the preschool pack you have put together! I hope others will as well! May this endeavor bless your family!

    ReplyDelete

All 3 of you have helped me in different ways of figuring out what I want to do and where I want to go with this new adventure! So MANY THANKS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Looks like you did a great job creating this curriculum. Do any of the reviewers have any up close action shots for the games and activities? It is difficult for me to see the samples. We used a variety of methods and free curricula with Alyssa.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hello, I bought this program, and printed everything out... but I don't see the instructions on how to actually PLAY "Roll and Read." What do I do?

    ReplyDelete
  57. A Learning Journey - I will try to put together a closer up post in the near future =-)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Michelle,

    Roll and Read is a FUN, active version of flashcards. Insert the cards into the photo dice cubes. Roll the dice and have your child read the word that appears. Take turns with other children or yourself to emphasize pronunciation. Repeat. Play several rounds. One mom told me when it is her turn she makes a sentence with the word - great early literacy activity!

    If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Email: livinglifeintentionallyblog (at) gmail.com

    Beth =-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh... we do not have photo dice cubes. :( Any suggestion for making it a FUN and active game without having to purchase special equipment?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Michelle you can easily make a dice cube out of a square kleenex box =-)

    Alternately you can put them on the floor and they can jump over to the word you call out (and visa versu)

    Put them down like a tic tac toe board and if you read the word correctly put down a manipulative (m&m, pom pom, fork, etc.) over the word. The first person to get 3 in a row wins =-)

    I might add some more above... my wheels are turning now =-) Hope that helps!

    Beth

    ReplyDelete
