What is Phonics?
Phonics is a way of teaching children to read skilfully by teaching them how to:
- recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes
- identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make
- blending those sounds together to make a word
Using the skills above, they are able to ‘decode’ new words that they see or hear. It can be used by kids of any age and ability. Even adults learn it too!
Why Learn Phonics?
Multiple studies point to the same thing: Recognizing words is one of the most critical factors of early reading and later success. And that is what phonics does! Phonics helps kids recognize words, making it one of the most important first step in learning reading.
It has been proven that children who have been taught phonics tend to read more accurately compared to those who don’t. Phonics has helped numerous children around the world who find difficulty learning to read, including those who have dyslexia.
