We are all busy homeschool parents and there is so much on our plate, from teaching math and science, to making sure kids get in their physical education. What if you could homeschool and have more time in your day to get things done? I have developed an exclusive system for homeschoolers which helps parents find more time in their day, while at the same time increasing their child’s passion and curiosity for learning .

When our homeschool journey began many years ago, Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons was one of the very first books I bought. At 4 years old, my son was eager to read and I was eager to teach him.
I heard about the book called Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons from other homeschoolers. Since it was relatively inexpensive compared to other reading programs, I decided to give it a try.
Each day my son and I cuddled on the couch for 15-30 minutes to go over each lesson. I was amazed at how quickly he picked up the lessons being taught. He was motivated and eager to learn.
It was this motivation and eagerness, along with the book, that helped him learn how to read.
Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons is not a “pretty” book. It doesn’t contain colorful pictures to entertain children. Instead it is a functional book that works to teach your child to read.
The authors make it extremely easy to teach your child to read. They give you a script of exactly what to say and do to help the child learn. Everything you need to say is printed in red and everything you need to do is spelled out for you in black. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
The author suggests sitting down with your child 20 minutes a day for each lesson. However, I found some days we did more than one lesson and other days we did less.
We did whatever my son was motivated to do. I never wanted to make reading a chore for him. I wanted to ensure his love for reading continued.
As the lessons move towards the hundredth lesson, children progressively learn how to read paragraphs and then short stories. After 100 lessons, my son was able to read short books we had around the house.
I will say that Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons is not for every child. I was so excited about how well it worked for my oldest son, that I thought it would work just as well for my daughter. That was not the case. For her, we ended up having to purchase a very expensive reading program.
I am glad that I found Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons for my son first before investing in an expensive reading program for him. It’s always worth trying the least expensive option first before moving on the more costly options.
I highly recommend you give Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons a try for your budding reader.
