When he begins to read?!

Practical aspect of a technique of N. A. Zaytsev.
For those who passed a half of a way and stopped in indecision.

Critical boundary. you passed together with the child - the preschool child a big piece of a way in the direction of training in reading in N. A. Zaytsev`s technique. Cubes and tables are mastered. The child quickly enough (often already and without your help) finds the necessary cube, and on it - the necessary warehouse...

All it is good, but here to sound this warehouse, to answer the question that they is written here, that is to read to a concrete warehouse (or the short word), it cannot yet. Someone quietly will also patiently continue games - occupations, based on interest of the child, without forcing events. And someone persistently will try to obtain the fastest transition directly to reading, constantly asking the questions what is it? what here is written? , being surprised at the same time that the child for some reason sharply loses interest in occupations. Why it occurs? How to continue studies? How not to make mistakes, aspiring to so desired end result - independent reading?

Who is guilty

? Parents in perplexity: in what business? Naturally, they in this situation have approximately such number of questions: “The technique does not work? Or so “dull“ child? Or we do something not so?“

“Everything knows

, and does not want to read“, - sighing, adults say to me, having come to consultation or a seminar. And often add at the same time:“ Is lazy, probably“.

I Want all who are in the same situation, to calm. Your child perfectly understands everything. And you on a right way. And the technique works. It is clear to accelerate your natural desire (to push) this process, but the word “is lazy“ in this case is absolutely inappropriate.

Once again about the letter and reading. If you attentively read all methodical recommendations (see N. A. Zaytsev`s book “the Letter. Reading. The account“ or the methodical brochure which is a part of a set of cubes), of course, you remember that one of basic provisions of a technique of Nikolay Aleksandrovich - the WAY TO READING LIES THROUGH the LETTER.

It is valid, to WRITE, that is to transfer to sounds to signs (cubes, a pointer according to the table or a pencil on a sheet of paper), it is much easier for the child, than to READ directly, that is to sound the written signs. For this reason we write much - many words together with the kid, and then we read their . Why such way is easier? Because at the child is not present and cannot be at such approach of a psychological barrier, uncertainty in own forces - he already foreknows what this word, he just wrote it together with you and repeatedly said. And as the letter and reading processes mirror, and transition directly to reading at such approach will be smooth, natural as something self-evident. And it will occur by all means when the number of the saved-up information and practical experience turns into quality.

Strategy of questions. two very important strategic questions Are. From ability to set them in the correct sequence, success of your efforts directed to training in reading in many respects depends.

It is the questions WHERE? and WHAT IS IT? Question “where?“ it is similar to reception of the letter (in Zaytsev`s technique), and the question “what is it?“ demands much bigger efforts from the child, he demands from it to read this warehouse or the word. it is much simpler to p to Answer with

the question “where?“ to the child, and then he will be able to answer also the question “what here is written?“

the Example. You together guessed a riddle: “Lives in a hollow and gnaws nutlets“. This is a squirrel. Wrote the word cubes. Read. The word is familiar. And now we will ask: where “KA“?, where “BE“?, where “L“? Of course, the child remembers all word. And here to find and show in it is mute separate warehouses - more difficultly. It is necessary to look for, so, to read. Then we ask: “what is it?“ , showing on any warehouse. You also will notice that such way is much more productive.

Very much process of an exit is helped in reading by the following reception.

we Will stick together 4 - 5 sheets of paper or we will get a roll of wall-paper which “just in case“ you kept after repair from the stocks. In the face of the child you will write with a thick felt-tip pen large letters at first simple short words, including familiar names, and right there will read them, allocating with a marker a shock warehouse in the word and paying to it attention of the child.

The the age of the child is less than

, the words and the less number of words are shorter. At first it can be any words, and then and words on a certain subject. Rolls can be rolled on a floor, it is possible to hang up on a tack as the poster.

we Read to the child all written words (let in the beginning it will be 5 - 6 words).“ Where the word WINTER, in it “-ma“ is allocated? Correctly. That it is allocated? (ma). And we will read all word?“ Why and not to read? Let`s help.

of Options of games with the written words great variety. It is possible to look for and read together only the allocated shock warehouse in each word. We look for the second word from above or the third from below. And where the word in which the warehouse “SA“ (fox) is allocated hid? The good fellow, found! What the word is? We read together. It is possible to look for among words only names of girls or only names of boys, only flowers or only animals. Everything depends on interests of the child at the moment of life. Such posters - rolls can be a little in different points of the room or apartment.

So we play

or we learn? Of course, we play. At preschool age any other way conducts to the deadlock. A mistake of adults - in their irrepressible desire (and at times and in the unreasonable and unreasonable requirement) that the child read: “You know letters, you put words from cubes - read rather!!!“ And if it is not ready to it yet? You noticed how at once the kid if you insist on something that he still not really - that is able to do becomes reserved and cannot meet your expectations? The disappointment of the kid is clear: unless it is game? And if the child still has not enough experience and confidence, then directly the question posed - the requirement discourages to continue game because in that case all this is necessary not for the kid any more, but the adult. And not game it at all, and coercion.

So what to do? to Have patience and to continue to write with cubes, according to the table, on word paper, it is a lot of words and to together read, sound them. To remember strategy of our questions. Not to deny the assistance if it is visible that the child is not confident in the forces and needs your support.

What we thereby do? Correctly - we continue to accumulate information and practical experience of the letter and reading. Do not force to reading. As soon as there is a certain quantum leap, the child and itself will not be able to hide from you the ability.

But if the child is not ready to read a warehouse or the word yet, be not upset.
