Using the Latest Kid Craze to Help Improve Your Child’s Reading
Frustrated by your child’s all-consuming interest in the latest kid crazes? At National Reading Diagnostics Institute and the Superlinks Accelerated Learning and Reading Instruction Center, we have found ways to use that interest to teach reading skills successfully. Here is an activity you can use to teach phonics skills using any of the lastest kid crazes your child enjoys.
Sample Activity for the Week to Teach Phonics through Your Child’s Latest Interest:
Short vowel sounds:
You can use the Keys to Reading Success accelerated phonics lesson plans for your kinesthetic, tactile, visual, or auditory learner, developed by Ricki Linksman, or make your own. Use the lesson on short vowel sounds in the child’s best learning style. Use the vowel cut apart cards in Keys to Reading Success, or make your own. Lay out the phonics cut apart cards. Have the child find as many characters in your child’s latest fad with names using the short vowel patterns. Group the characters with short “a” in one pile, characters with short “e” in another pile, with short “i” in another pile, short “o” in a pile, and short “u” in a pile. Variations of the above activity for learning styles:
Visual learners can make a wall poster of each vowel pattern with the matching characters having that sound in their name.
Auditory learners can make up a song about all the characters with short “a” in their name, and play a musical instrument to accompany the song words.
Tactile learners can illustrate their own short vowel booklets with the matching characters.
Kinesthetic learners can set up five baskets, each with a sticker for each vowel. One basket can have short a on it, one has short e, etc. The child must toss the card into the basket that matches the short vowel sound in the character’s name.
For more phonics learning games, you can order: Off the Wall Phonics (an accelerated phonics games program with 10 levels of 10 games each. Within a few months, you can take your child whether in K-12 to high school and college level reading in the shortest possible time. it’s fast, fun, and it works!)

Help for People with Dyslexia
In Newsweek for the week of November 15-22, the feature article was on dyslexia. At National Reading Diagnostics Institute and the Superlinks Accelerated Learning and Reading Instruction Center, we have been helping students and adults with dyslexia learn to read successfully. They can learn to read but through different methods. Here is one success story by a man in his fifties in Chicago who ran a successful business but was frustrated by his inability to read throughout his life.
“I am in my fifties, and I could never read before due to dyslexia. When I heard of the book Solving Your Child’s Reading Problems, by Ricki Linksman, I called her and came for diagnostic testing and instruction at the National Reading Diagnostics Institute. For the first time in my life I can actually read. What I realized is that I could read, but by using a different method.”
Many students who were labelled as dyslexic were able to learn to read on grade level through different techniques. If you or someone you know has dyslexia, the following resources can help them: Off the Wall Phonics (K-12, college, and adult), and Keys to Reading Success to teach them to read successfully.
