is a favorite television program for pre-schoolers. You may bewondering if there are books for children to read to back up some of the shows as this would help children learning to read.There has been developed a Paw Patrol Phonics Box Set (Paw Patrol) (Step into Reading) – twelve colorful picture books are complete with words created as phonics readers. Each of the story books has specific phonics concepts for boys and girls ages 3 – 7 to have some of the tools they need to begin to learn how to read.The name of the set is Phonics Step into Reading.A well proven method of learning used in American classrooms throughout English courses in Middle Schools and High Schools implement movie watching with reading novels. Students will learn this way so why not pre-schoolers.

What parents need to know: What is Phonics?The English language uses phonics to sound out words and learn to read. In other words, each letter of the alphabet has a sound. The next step after pre-schoolers learn the abc’s is to help them understand phonics. There are some letters used together to have a special sound they make like ch sh th ck ai ou ea oa ow eigh ay ie aw ee…oy oi…and so on. Parents may like to read with children at home as this is an especially effective and nice way to learn these codes. Due to geographic accent differences, how you say things with your children in your home may be different from a teacher in a classroom or even many of their classmates. It is all right for you to speak the way you sound with your accent. Your children will easily learn from you. Then, they will adapt what they have already learned from you to what they need to know at school. Working together with your children is the best way for them to understand and learn. Be assured, the English Language may eloquently apply easily to various minor differences in sounds formed from accents.

Readers will experience an adventure while reading this easy reader chapter book with lots of words for them to easily sound out and just enough pictures to keep their imagination flowing.

You could easily take time to notice how children who read well take good care of their books. Children’s easy reader books over sixty pages long are now written for 6-8 yr olds. That is, children in grades 1-3 are reading beyond what could have been imagined only a few short years ago. While educators searched for methods to teach children to read and politicians rallied around the No-Child-Left-Behind Act to make sure children would not be allowed to pass third grade if they could NOT READ; book publishers have been busy at work – that’s proof something is working. Now in the year 2015 young children can read better than ever before. Thanks to all of those adults, athletes, VIP’s, soldiers, and parents who have taken the time to read to children in classrooms on videos from around the globe, or at home. We are witnessing a generation of children who can and are reading all kinds of books that have been written especially for them. Children’s books have special places on shelves in libraries and in homes and are published digitally or on colorful good quality paper. Children of all ages from anywhere in the world are learning to read the English Language. There is a rising respect for reading a good story in the eyes of the child hearing the story and also from the perspective of the person who reads. Help your children to learn to read and to take good care of the children’s books that they enjoy – keep them in a special place

Video game books may not be allowed in some schools.

Teachers do not always consider video game books appropriate reading material for the classroom even though students are frequently given free time to read. Consequently students are left to read video game books at their own homes, which after all, is not a bad idea. Video game books are actually so well liked by some students that they may enjoy reading them at home as extra reading. All that reading is a good exercise for the young student’s left to right eye movement, and their thinking. This could be a very good rule enforced by those strict teachers in some modern thinking schools!
