THE SCIENCE BEHIND READ WITH PEN
According to a National Institute of Child Health and Human Development report, Phonemic Awareness is the best method to learn to read. Its conclusion states:
‘. . . teaching children to manipulate phonemes in words was highly effective under a variety of teaching conditions with a variety of learners across a range of grade and age levels and that teaching phonemic awareness to children significantly improves their reading more than instruction that lacks any attention to Phonemic Awareness.’
The vast majority of brain function develops during the first 6 years of life. Although the chances to develop most of the cognitive abilities are not lost after that time, “the earlier, the better” definitely fits here.
