Automation of Reading Skills
In addition, the syllable method is used consistently. Thus children learn playfully the rhythm of language. As a result the child receives an easier access to writing. Orthography is not learned phenomenologically (single spellings of words), but systematically (rules of written words). This is done by color-coded division of words into groups of letters, thereby facilitating the understanding and autonomous reading. The hyphenation marks the syllables, not the word separation, meaning it marks the syllables that can be synchronously talked and clapped.
The constant repetition of words increases the learning and recognition process, which is essential for fluent reading. Therefore automation is key for children to be able to read fluently and write securely.
Central Importance of Reading Skills
Children learn early on how to deal with a wide range of media. As a result the actual process of learning to read moves increasingly into the background. Often a lack of motivation to read longer texts follows insufficient excitement to read.
The identification with the characters and the lovely illustrations increase the motivation to strengthen reading skills playfully and actively deal with the content of the texts. Thus the individual and independent interest in reading and reliable writing is encouraged.
