What is phonics - Anyway?
Strategies for sounding out words
You may be asking what is phonics anyway? Phonics is the
relationship between letters and sounds. Blending sounds together to form words is a skill needed when
children come across a word that is unfamiliar to them and they need to 'sound it out'.
Teaching children how to sound
out words by blending individual letters together to form words develops reading and spelling
Sounding out words is only possible if you have an
understanding of phonics. Teaching children about phonics will assist them to:
- identify sounds when they are spoken
- understand the relationship between spoken sounds and written
- identify sounds in words
- sound out written words
- blend sounds together to form words
Introducing phonics instruction early is the best way to help
children beginning to read. Having a good understanding of phonics makes both reading
and spelling easier.
