Looking for tips to teach kids to read? If you are one of the parents who have suddenly been charged with teaching your child to read, you may be feeling a little nervous about it. Perhaps your kindergarten or first-grade child has been attending school online, and it's just now becoming clear to you that learning is not taking place as well as you had hoped.

Perhaps you are lacking in self-confidence, too! Fortunately, with a small amount of guidance, you will find that teaching reading is actually pretty easy and straight-forward. As you begin, keep these 3 tips in mind.
