ESL

I wanted to know if you have any Spanish phonics that will help my son to read a little better. I have him in a bilingual class and it hurts me to see him struggle a lot when he reads. Please help me!

The principles of learning to read and speak any language are the same. He needs to know and understand what each letter says and then practice, practice, practice on blending those phonetic sounds into simple phonetic words. Don’t worry about all the exceptions to the English rules out there—concentrate on the letters and sounds they make, blending those sounds into words and being able to read those words in simple phonetic books. Then as his skill and confidence increases, you can start to explain all of the rule-breaking words that English has. Good luck and enjoy learning with your child.
