Reading


Teacher is one of the professions that I never dreamed of because I don’t have the patience. I swear I dislike it but now I’m doing it because my son is now studying. First semester was stressful because of the adjustments and now it is even more stressful because of the lessons that my son needs to learn.

There are times that I don’t know which subject I will concentrate because I feel that he needs to improve on all his subjects. He needs to enhance his writing skills, memorize 1-100 and learn to identify the odd and even numbers and of course he must know how words are read. Honestly, it is not easy at first and there are times I really want to hire tutor because I’m losing my patience.

Good thing that I already taught him phonics before he entered school and now we are reviewing the sight words again and I’m hoping that he can read his own books. As in read the words not because he already memorized some parts of the book. Whenever we review his assignment and he is not in the mood, he will recite all the words even though I’m only pointing on one word.

For example:

I’m showing the word cat and my son will say, cat, cot cup
I’m showing the word gas and my son will say gas, gil, gum
I’m showing the word jar and my son will say jar, jet jug

That’s always our scenario and how I wish I can buy more patience. If you can relate, feel free to share your thoughts, recommendations and suggestions.

  3. If he knows phonics na, good. After that, two letters na kayo like ba, ca, da, then sulat mo like this: ba - bat bag ca - cat car ; tuloy2 lang sis. mas madali ang transition pag ganun since alam na niya yung two letters. starfall.com din sis. try mo. mas madali kasi talaga dahan2 sa kids pag reading. mas ok na dahil alam talaga nila yung sound ng letter kaya nila nababasa kesa sa memorized nila, sila rin mahihirapan. Kaya niya yan sis with your help. Goodluck sis! =)

  4. Pareho tyo. Never dreamed of becoming a teacher too because I just don't have the patience for it. If it's my child or nephew, then ok lang. But for other kids, nako! Baka makasuhan ako. Hehehe! =D
