Worksheets are great tools to help children learn new concepts and then reinforce them. However, we don’t recommend that you simply cycle through each worksheet one-by-one: your most important job is to ensure your child associates reading with fun and working through a series of worksheets will most likely have the opposite effect.

Instead, we suggest you pick and choose a worksheet when the time is right. For example, your child might be confident at sounding out simple words such as ‘sat’ and ‘cat’, but might be struggling with words like ‘cake’ and ‘plate’. In this instance, the ‘Long a’ sound worksheet would be ideal to help you teach your child the different sound ‘a’ makes when it is followed by a consonant and then an e.

Once your child has mastered each of the reading worksheets make sure you spend time reading some new books with them – ideally books which will give them an opportunity to practice their new skill.
