Linda Strong Teaching Young Children to Read and Write. There is nothing more gratifying than to watch the skill of reading and writing open up to a child. We will begin this class by laying the foundation of the blessing of the ability to communicate through language and the importance of being good stewards over this gift. We will discuss the importance of phonemic awareness such as rhyming, hearing beginning, middle and ending sounds in preparing a child to read. The ability to decode words phonetically is an asset to any child in developing reading skills. As a child uses the skills of phonetic decoding, spelling, reading, and writing words, he is able to create his/her own sentences. Excitement for reading is guaranteed when a child is able to read his or her own writing.
