The child starts by tracing a large version of the letter to make the shape clear to them. The large dot shows the child where to start the letter.

They then trace some smaller ones. The next stage is to copy the letter. Help your child to see the difference between the two letters on the page. See if your children know more words beginning with these letters, or any words that include these letters. You could also practise writing capital letters in a similar way.
As your child works on their letters you can create a letter poster. Peg mopped the mud off the rug. The man had a nap. The pup ran after the rat.
Bob fed ten figs to the pig. Tom has a top and a doll. Ted has a tin tub. Peg has a bat and a bus. Tom spins his top. The look-say method has been immensely popular with poor teachers, because it gives the appearance of quick learning as the first few tranches of words are learned. I have used the look-say method with children of very low intelligence as means of conditioning a basic reading level for very simple material.
The English language, as stated , is not phonically standardised. Around the early s, an attempt was made to standardise English, called I-T-A Initial Teaching Alphabet , using forty-four letters phonemes , with the objective that once the child was moving along under such a scheme, the transfer to standard orthography would easier. I-T-A may have been a good idea had it become the universal print medium, although that would make millions of extant books rather difficult for the next generation!
English Language Teaching
See, for example, the Han-gul alphabet , forced on the people of Korea by King Sejong in , which is acclaimed amongst linguists for its excellent and scientific design. However, I-T-A in its intended use suffers from similar, but lesser, problems to look-say. Look-say merely turns the reading task into a pointless and cumbersome memory exercise, whereas phonics requires far more in the way of analytic skills. For those having problems seeing the phonetic symbols, please see this footnote on the phonetics chart page.
The letter is not an active being. Humans may assemble a chair. The letter is made by humans out of material such as ink on paper or electrons on your computer screen. By understanding fundamental logic of this type, the learner will reason more clearly from early on, rather than being confused. To teach these difference effectively, use the concept of pointing.
You point at a tree, make the child aware of pointing at a car, or a kitchen sink.

Teach the child that the words are like pointing - the words are used to point at objects without you having to raise your index finger. Likewise the letters indicate, or point at, sounds. Which sounds the letters point to is arbitrary, it varies with local accent and amongst human languages. The sound [w] starts with the lips together. However, these real differences are probably not significant for any but the most careful speech therapists or linguists, especially when dealing with a child having difficulties understanding how to form particular sounds.
See reality, laying the foundations for sound education I would never introduce a young child to any fictions, without making very clear to the child that it was a game and checking to make sure the child understood the difference between fiction and reality. That means that I would never teach a child that Father Christmas is a real entity who was likely to intrude on their bedroom, down a chimney!
If you teach the young falsehoods about the world, how will you expect them to think clearly? If you teach them falsehoods in among facts, as if there is no difference, how do you imagine they will not be confused?
It has been known clearly since at least that 'fairy tales' form a part of most children's fears. Yet the casual foolishness continues; even Plato suggested not teaching fictions.
The Ladybird scheme is numbered , with A-C at each level. Number 1 is the most basic, number 12 is the most difficult. Ladybird assert that the completion of number 8 is equivalent to an eight year old reading level. The sound [y] is somewhat whispered, the tongue briefly goes to the top of the mouth, and the mouth is mostly closed.
You may find that your child finds the latter easier to say. Reality, laying the foundations for sound education Introduction to franchise discussion documents.
