It's time for back to school, and time for homeschooling moms to consider curriculum and lesson plans for the year. Even if your child is only in kindergarten, you’ve got to start somewhere, right? While reading may be the ultimate goal, building pre-reading skills is crucial to later reading success. Recognizing phonemes and understanding how to teach phonics to your child will be invaluable, so consider doing some studying of your own.
Learning about syllables is important because in many cases syllables represent phonemes, the smallest bits of pronunciation in words. So learning about syllables helps kids learning to read. It also helps young children to understand where the accent goes in multi-syllable words, and it helps tremendously with spelling. Learning about syllables should definitely be a part of your kindergarten plan.
