Myth Busting

    MYth#1: DON't Teach reading earlY!
Reading Myth 1

One of the most common arguments  against early reading instruction is that if you start teaching your child to read at a young age, your child will get bored at school. 

While this might be true in some cases, you are trading your child not getting bored at school for a distinct cognitive advantage that learning to read at a young age gives to the child. So… What do you prefer?

myth #2: english can't be taught phonetically
Reading Myths 2

Many people still think that since English has many irregularities, phonics is an inefficient way of teaching reading! That belief is actually behind the whole language movement…

And while English phonics is complex (and teaching a little bit of phonics here and there doesn’t work very well) phonics instrucion in systematic way has proven to be the most effective method for teaching reading so far.

    MYth#3:Reading is as natural as speaking
Reading Myths 3

Many people still believe that kids can pick up reading naturally if they are sorrounded by books! This belief is based upon an outdated theory that has been invalidated by modern science.

In fact, research on the human brain over the last couple of decades is very clear on this point: We are not naturally wired for learning to read!

Learning to read is about cracking the code. And we need to learn a system to crack it!

myth#4: many poor readers will just catch up
Reading Myths 4

This myth is an extension of the previous one: “Reading is a natural skill, such us speaking”. So, that means that the poor readers will pick up eventually pick up because learning to read is natural. According to those who believe this, in the same way some  children learn to speak later, some children learn to read later as well. 

Again, this couldn’t be further from the truth. On the contrary, the sooner you spot and support a poor reader, the better!
