How to teach my 6 yr old boy to make a 3 letter word "CAT" with "at". He understand, memorise and after teaching some bunch of words, he forgets most of the word.

My husband sometimes, gets angry and shout at him. Pls help me to help my son to memorise words.

First of all your husband shouting at him isnt going to help. Maybe you and your husband can take turns when each other has reached their limit? Or perhaps take a 5-10 minute break and then go back to it?

For my kids i use to do alot of reading and i would ask them to find me the word "cat" and they would point to it and i would say what letter does cat start with and so on. I also use to get them to write the words. I use to just make dots and they would follow them until they could do the letters on their own. Flash cards from the dollar store helped too, they loved them! You have to make learning fun othrwise you get power struggles and its not much fun for either of you. He is only 6 he will get it just be patient,
