Method On Your Child
With A Frisco TX
If you have a child who's exhibiting some difficulty in reading,
perhaps a new learning mechanism is all it takes to turn
The Reading Ranch, a chain of tutorial
facilities in Texas, offers a literacy
program that utilizes a teaching
method known as phonics. The center
accepts students from PreK to 6th
The program aims to enhance children's literacy by taking an
alternative approach to reading and writing.
As opposed to providing significant
amounts of reading materials to
enhance reading abilities, phonics
focuses on helping children hear and
sound out new words.
Through phonics instruction, your child will learn how to
decode letters or groups of letters into their individual
The technique is particularly
beneficial to early readers,
allowing them to read unfamiliar
words by themselves.
Since they are encountering most words for the first time in print,
reading may prove to be a challenge even if they have come across the
same terms in speech.
When your child develops some
awareness of phonemes and how they
are illustrated graphically, further
reading instruction is given, this time to
heighten their awareness of language.
Citing data from the National Assessment of Educational
Progress, The Reaching Ranch points out that 60% of American
fourth-graders do not qualify as proficient readers.
The literacy experts also warn that
children who fail to acquire reading
skills by the end of their third grade
tend to become poor readers for the
rest of their lives.
The center’s owner, Dr. Kim Southwell adds, “Phonics is a critical piece in reversing that trend because
the brain is not wired to read. It is wired to speak, which is why language is so much easier for us to pick
up at an early age. But the ability to read is an entirely different skillset.”
The Reading Ranch operates tutorial facilities
in multiple Texas locations, including Plano,
Frisco, Allen, North Dallas, Lewisville,
Denison, Southlake, Argyle
