As Reading Fairy prepares to launch a new website, we highlight some of our guest blog posts to help your child to read.
Latest government research shows that parents and the home environment can make a significant impact on how children learn to read.
Following World Book Day, Emily Guille-Marrett wrote an article for TalkMum.com on how parents and carers can promote a love of reading at home.
We are grateful to Gillian Crawshaw from A Baby on Board for publishing this article.
Recent reports on phonics have left many parents and carers confused and concerned about how best to help their child learn to read. This guest blog post by Reading Fairy summarizes government, academic and media debates in an easy and informative way. A reading list is included at the bottom of the article, which you may find helpful.
Reading Fairy helped organize the Story Time event at GEEK2014. Founder Emily Guille-Marrett encouraged children to explore traditional tales and fairytales in multiple forms. She told traditional tales, read picture books and played fairytale Apps by award-winning children’s publishing house Nosy Crow.
Fairy tales and traditional storytelling help children to acquire knowledge and patterns of language to help children learn to read and write.
