It’s quite amazing what you can find on YouTube.  There are resources for cooking, millions of product reviews, and yes, a massive list of videos and resources for reading.  You can even check out the ChromaGen YouTube Channel to stay updated, hear from certified ChromaGen practitioners, and watch video testimonials!

For today’s blog post, we wanted to highlight a few videos on YouTube that we found were great for parents teaching their young children to read!  And don’t worry, we believe in the power of quick videos!  The below clips are all short, to the point, and include some very neat tips and information.  Enjoy!

Video 1: Teaching Reading With Rhyming

Who doesn’t love a good rhyme?  While fun for any age, the young ones in our lives might get the biggest kick out of a good rhyme.  In this video from ExpertVillage, you learn how to use rhymes to keep reading fun.  Use your child’s name in the rhyming game to keep their interest and push them to want to learn more!


 Video 2: The Importance of Reading Aloud

This next video is from SixtySecondParent.  They explain that some of the most important skills a parent can teach their child is how to speak, listen, and read.  When you read aloud to your kids, you are teaching all of these skills.


Video 3:  Teaching The Alphabet

Simply put, understanding the alphabet and the sounds that each letter makes is the basis for learning to read.  In this video from Howcast, they introduce a few very helpful visual aids to introduce and teach the alphabet to your child.

The videos above are just a very small sample of the great resources you can find on YouTube.  Do you have any favorite videos that you can share with us?  Just pop them into the comments section below, and maybe we’ll feature them in the future!
