Présentation de l'éditeur

Raise a Child Who Loves to Read
How do kids really learn to read? And how can you encourage interest in reading and writing from the start? In Raising Confident Readers, based on the five phases of literacy development, Dr. J. Richard Gentry provides fun and easy ways to teach your child to read and write successfully.
When it comes to language, the most critical brain growth happens in early childhood. Raising Confident Readers shows you how to activate and accelerate this capacity for learning: The key is to introduce the right activities at the right time. Whether your child is a baby or toddler, in preschool or kindergarten, or first or second grade, Dr. Gentry helps you identify your child’s literacy phase and take the next steps to build writing, reading, and spelling skills. You’ll discover:
  • How your child’s brain learns to read—and why encouraging drawing and scribbling is as essential as reading aloud
  • The best at-home activities to develop literacy early, naturally, and joyfully
  • Recommended children’s books for each phase
  • Strategies for overcoming dyslexia, delayed reading, and other challenges
  • Checklists and a milestones diary to celebrate your child’s progress
As your child moves through the five phases, they’ll soon be sounding out and spelling words correctly, reading chapter books independently, and writing creative stories on their own. Complete with samples of children’s writing throughout, Raising Confident Readers is an essential resource to foster your child’s lifelong love of reading.

Raising Confident Readers: How to Teach Your Child to Read and Write--from Baby to Age 7is an excellent handbook for caregivers of young children to prepare them for a lifetime of reading. It is obvious from the books cover that the instructions and guidelines inside are meant for children from birth until approximately age seven.

The book divides the teaching of reading into distinct stages:
Phase 0: 0 to age 3
Phase 1: 3 to age 5 - Depending on what happens at home
Phase 2: 3 to age 6 - Depending on what happens at home
Phase 3: 4 to age 6 - Depending on what happens at home
Phase 4: 4 to age 7 - Depending on what happens at home

It appears that from birth, Author Gentry insists that good reading habits can be started by caregivers reading aloud to their newborn with the infant held in a position to clearly see the moving lips of the reader. At this early stage, comprehension is not important. It is the modeling of the behavior of reading that will slowly transfer to a baby as s/he begins to develop.

Raising Confident Readers places tremendous emphasis on labeling familiar items in a child's room: bed, chair, window, light, and referring to these items often during the day each time the baby/toddler is in that room. It is critical that a caregiver point to the word sliding pointer finger from left to right while pronouncing the word.

As the child learns to manipulate writing tools (crayons, thick pencils, finger paint, etc.) it is important that a caregiver and the child attribute meaning to what at first appears to be mere scribbles. "Let's draw a boy," says the caregiver. From the vertical up and down random marks, a caregiver can point to the top and say, "Okay, here is where the boy's head would be." Pointing to the middle, "and here is the boy's tummy and bellybutton."

Raising Confident Readers says it is critically important that a child learns to be comfortable, slowly gaining confidence in the ability to draw and make lines that will eventually lead to making letters. Caregivers can slowly integrate drawings regardless how meaningless they may appear by writing the word for the drawing beside it. In the above example, it is important to write the word "boy" beside the scribbles so the artwork can be hung in the child's room or on the refrigerator.

During this 0 to age 3 phase, a caregiver can help the child learn to write the letters that spell her/his name. When the child can perform that task independently, s/he is ready to advance to Phase 1. Notice above that Phases 1 through 4 all depend on what happens at home.

If a caregiver is aware of the critical learning that can take place during these next 6-7 years of very rapid brain growth, during that time when the child is in the home, very significant growth toward reading can take place. Raising Confident Readers can make caregivers aware of these important stages and how to mount each one.

In addition to a thorough explanation of what to teach and how to teach, this book lists a variety of fun materials that can be adapted for in-home use. It also lists age appropriate books one can purchase at any good bookstore with a child's book section.

As an educator for over 30 years who spent much time each day attempting to teach slow learners how to read, I must recommend Raising Confident Readers to anyone with a small baby or toddler at home. Why? Because of the emphasis the book places on what can be done from birth until the child enters school that will foster good reading skills. During this time, critical cortical processes are linking within the brain, links that can determine a confident reader from one that stumbles along, hating printed words.

Incidentally, my granddaughter Haven is 18 months old. I have just copied out pages 65 to 99--the entire section of teaching reading at Phase 0--for my daughter and her husband and for grandma and grandpa (My wife and I) when Haven comes here. We can begin immediately to do the things in Raising Confident Readers to get Haven ready for reading.

I have been on a reading binge on the subject of teaching your child to read, and this was one of the least helpful that I found. I was initially put off by several aspects of the book:
(1) requirement to teach reading and writing together - I gather it is in vogue these days to bring them together, but my experience (both my own in learning foreign languages and in teaching my son to read) that reading (taking in information) is much easier than writing (creating something). I don't think there's a problem in doing both at the same time, but my experience is that they will not proceed together.
(2) the rigid walls between each of the phases identified (0 through 3). The requirement to pass from phase 0 to phase 1 is that he is able to write his name. My son can read his name, say the letters, put together block letters in the correct order, and also read several simple short vowel words (e.g., up, cup, can, pat, etc), but he cannot write his name. So he's still phase 0? But he's already doing things that are in her phase 3!
(3) The phases themselves seem somewhat arbitrary and don't seem to align with something more obvious like:
(a) can make at least some of the sounds associated with letters; (b) can read small words with short vowels; (c) can read larger words with short vowels; (d) can read words with special combinations (e.g., sh, ch, qu); (e) can read long vowel words.
(4) Not much on fun and motivation. This has been a key component of keeping my son enthusiastic about reading, and I didn't see much emphasis on this.

I thought I would try to just ignore all the structure and focus on the ideas themselves, to see if there are games or activities in there that I can use with my son. But most of it really seemed focused on writing, and too much of it seemed to allow and even encourage poor spelling (another recent trend that I find appalling).

The two books I have found most helpful with my son are Sydney Ledson's Teach Your Child to Read in Just Ten Minutes a Day and Mem Fox's Reading Magic. I would recommend these most heartily.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent choice to teach your child to read 19 septembre 2012

I read this book in the Library. I like how Dr Gentry selected the age group to separate the activities for phases. If you decide to read it you have to be committed to follow the process.... It is very interesting and fun. You need to work it and at the end it will work for you and your LO. If you are teaching another language you'll have to work a little more looking for proper books and how those other-language-words are made, so you can teach them correctly. The most important thing is that your LO can develop love for reading, reading comprehension, etc.... Let the journey begin!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable information for parents and teachers! 26 août 2011

I went into reading this book already a fan of Dr. Richard Gentry after having read an awesome article he recently wrote about children's literacy. This book did not disappoint one bit. I highly recommend that parents and teachers, as well as adults who work with kids in some other capacity, take the time to read this book. It is full of valuable information and practical tips to help you, as the title says, raise confident readers. I especially appreciated that was a wide age range addressed and there were specific tips given for each age group, instead of being all lumped together. This made the tips easy to locate and easy to implement. I am passionate about not only making sure my kids know how to read well, but helping them LOVE to read, and this book gave me lots of ideas to help move them along their literacy journey.
