Reading Schemes And Materials For Home Reading

Are Reading Schemes And Materials For Home Use A Good Idea ?

Well…The short answer to this is: both Yes. . . and No .

They are not a good idea if they lead to any kind of pressure being put on a child to learn to read. Making a reluctant child work at home in order to accelerate progress is only likely to lead to rebellion at some later stage. They are a good idea if the materials are :

  • – bright and exciting ;
  • – written by someone who really does know their business and who understands what is happening in schools ;
  • – genuinely appealing to children ;
  • – likely to provide you with some support in helping your child to learn.
