A great way to teach a child to read is by using flashcards. The fun is in the making of them.
Have your child or student help find pictures of things in the story.
Cut them out and glue them onto 3x5 cards.
Next write the name of the object on the card back.
Show them the word, have them read it and then turn it over to see if they were right.
This is one variation, you can also write the word under the picture.
Here's one pages I made to go along with “Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa”. (of course I have the advantage of having the art work that goes with the book)
