Read, Read, Read to her. Good early books to help with reading are Dr. Seuss books, Sandra Boynton Books, Doreen Cronin books. There are others I am sure. Read a book (or more) a day to her. About a year ago, we started having ds pick out words...say "can you find the word """ on this page. Now he's reading. I will note that we have read to ds since he was born so he was introduced at the earliest of ages. But if you read to your child every day, just take 10-15 minutes a day...it will help alot.

I found a great set of worksheets at http://www.worksheetsforpreschool.com - they've got different ones for different age groups, but they have helped me with both my kids - the books cover everything - math, writing and reading, and the sounds and alphabet stuff is fantastic. The more you read, to and with your child, the sooner she'll pick it up too, but she needs to learn phonetics and do it step-by-step so she doesn't stumble later on when things get more difficult. It's great that she's interested - keep her at it!

earlly learning books w/a few sight words worked great for us! My daughter just started K in fall 09 and is 5 also. Just a few weeks ago her reading started taking off. Her teacher also sends home a few sight words every few weeks to memorize which is really helping (things like I, My, You, She, He). ex. I could send you a copy of the 25 we have if you like

Someone suggested to me http://www.kidzone.ws/dolch/kindergarten... this website. Help your child learn these words. I have not yet tried it.. My daughter had the My First Leap Pad and now has the tag system. This is helping her along with what she is learning in kindergartner. She is 6 years old and is just now reading some.

We bought our daughter a set of early reader books that we read together. We help her with the words. The more she reads them the more comfortable she is with reading them to us. I seems to help alot. Check out Barnes & Knoble or similar stores. They have a wide selection to choose from.
