A plain-English guide to teaching phonics. Every parent can teach reading—no experts need apply! Too many parents watch their children struggle with early reading skills—and don't know how to help. Phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure educationalese. The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading cuts through the confusion, giving parents a simple, direct, scripted guide to teaching reading—from short vowels through supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. This one book supplies parents with all the tools they need. Over the years of her teaching career, Jessie Wise has seen good reading instruction fall prey to trendy philosophies and political infighting. Now she has teamed with dynamic coauthor Sara Buffington to supply parents with a clear, direct phonics program—a program that gives them the know-how and confidence to take matters into their own hands.

The present research consists of 45 pages, 4 chapters, 5 subchapters, 6 tables, 6 figures and 6 appendices. The author of the paper has analysed different kinds of literature, such as scientific research and publications, scientific and course books referred to the teaching reading methods and the best approaches. In his practical part of this research the author has tried to implement the most effective methods and approaches into practise. All the author’s successes and failures are described, analysed and taken into consideration in this research. The author of the paper has chosen teaching reading topic because he discovered evident contradiction between a comparatively great number of English lessons: qualitative course books on one hand, and apparently poor reading skills on the other hand in elementary school. The main, positive conclusion of the research is that variations of teaching methods considerably improve reading skills, but this regularity does not always apply to the children that are having different psychological problems like shyness, diffidence, fear. At the same time a poor ability to make conclusion and poor vocabulary is the main cause of weak language comprehension and lacking reading skills.
