Hi! I'm Amy, the owner of MyThreeReaders.com,
(and the mother of 3 amazing readers.)
Welcome! My goal for this blog is to connect parents and teachers who have beginning readers (and particularly struggling readers) to great resources and tools that can actually help move a child forward to become a strong reader (and not just to get by!)
Learning how to decode words, and teaching a new reader how to get started can be daunting.
Or maybe you have an older reader who is struggling to catch on in general? I'd like to help there, too. You'll find here more helpful resources for learning phonics, for strategies to increase your child's comprehension, and to help their reading fluency.
Maybe - you just need to not be alone while your child is struggling and others seem to be zipping ahead. In all honesty, that is the feeling that drew me to create this blog in the first place.
Even though I hold a degree in Elementary Education, and I'm a former teacher, two of my own children struggled for different reasons on their paths to reading success. Their classroom teachers were wonderful women and terrific instructors. But I have realized along the way that we were all lacking some basic skills in teaching reading that could have been addressed sooner, had I known.
I don't want you to lack these skills as you teach your child or student!
You are not alone.
I have been there.
Your child will read.
And you will be so proud!
Meanwhile, it's hard work and it may take time. But hang in there. You'll both succeed!
One of the basic components that many children are lacking in their reading instruction is a firm grounding in phonemic awareness (sounds). For this reason, and because my own children needed it, I created and bundled together fun alphabet and phonics digital activities with sound to help kids, parents and teachers with this skill. You can find that bundle here!
I'd love for you to reach out to let me know if I can help in any way. I am a fellow Mom trying to help and encourage other parents who are stressed about their child's reading.
Mainly - I just want parents to know that the stress is real, and you aren't alone. You really can teach your child to read!
