What are some good ways for babies to learn literacy efficiently?

When children reach around 6 years old, they enter a sensitive period for literacy. At this time, they begin to like to read words. When they pretend that they understand, as if they are reading, we can guide the children to pay attention to the \”parts\” in the words. What is a \”part\”? To put it bluntly, they are the parts that make up each word. For example, the word \”Qing\” in \”清天\” is composed of \”日\” and \”青\”, and \”日\” and \”青\” are the parts of the word \”清\”. Chinese characters are square characters, much like building blocks. This is grouped with this, and that is grouped with that. Although there are many ways to create Chinese characters, including pictograms, meanings, meanings, and pictophonetic characters… but a very high proportion of them are pictophonetic characters, nearly 90%. The radicals of pictophonetic characters represent \”meaning\” and the radicals represent \”sound\”. So just by looking at the radical of a word, you can roughly guess what it is, and by looking at the radical, you can roughly know how to pronounce it. For example, when a child is studying, he knows a word called \”青\”, which means \”green\”. \”Green\” is a component. After a while, he may see another word, a \”worm\” next to the word \”青\”. You can first say to your child: \”Look, this word has the word \’worm\’ on it. This word is talking about insects!\” Then the child will know that this may be a certain kind of insect, and then you can ask him to guess how to pronounce it. He said \”蜻\”, dragonfly\’s dragonfly, and he guessed correctly. After a while, he saw a new word, three dots of water appeared next to \”green\”. When the child saw the water part, he knew it was a state of water. Then you asked him to guess how to pronounce the word, and he pronounced it \”Qing\”, and he guessed correctly again. Okay, let’s take another word. He saw that there is “eye” next to “green”, which means the eye. At this time, he knew that it was probably a certain state of the eyes, and he might silently pronounce it as “eye blue”. At this time, he will feel very strange, because there is the word \”eye\” in his spoken language, so according to the context, he will change it to \”eye\”, and then he will recognize the word \”eye\”. Through \”paying attention to parts\”, you teach your children to see what the structures inside the words look like. When they see the insect part, they guess it is a certain kind of insect, and when they see the grass part, they know it is a certain kind of plant. After having a large number of parts, he can put it together and read it by himself. do you know? According to research, in Chinese, as long as a child has a literacy level of 1,500 characters, he can understand more than 90% of the text around him. In other words, although there are thousands of Chinese characters, as long as a child has basic literacy, reading in his daily life will not be a problem. And these 1,500 words are only composed of more than 300 parts. Therefore, recognizing parts is a very efficient method of literacy.
