What you see is processed in the brain. You learn to see similarity and diffenernces in pictures, letters and words. This is nessesary to be able to read, because different letters make a word. Words and letters are situated at a certain position. The “p” upside down is a ”b”, and twisted it is a “d”. By making words out of letters there becomes a word picture. Children learn to remember what they see, and are able to remeber it later.
Before learning to write and read speaking is important. Children learn to make words out of sounds. Before children learn to read they have to know wich sounds make words and wich sounds are in the front/middle of back in a word. Rhythm is the way to learn this. Children remember easy when learning from a song. To perform task you need a auditory memory. How many tasks a child can remember is important to know, so you don’t give a child to many tasks at once.
