Have fun with reading!
I would just like to share my experience in teaching 6 year olds on how to read, especially on phonics (sound of the alphabets). I notice they learn better through some phonic songs which I found in youtube and it seems they enjoyed it. Apart from that, using flashcards to teach is also another effective method to teach them reading stage by stage. You can do it in various ways such as making it as a quiz after teahcing them the sounds. This is more like a competition among them and they love it.
Using flashcards: example from youtube:
In order to teach 6 year olds, teacher has to focus on consonants first, then to vowels and slowly to consonant blends. IN this way, the child will not get confused as it goes from easy to difficult.
