Did you know that studies have shown that phonics instruction results in better reading skills than traditional reading methods?
Phonics was first developed in the late 1800s as a way to help illiterate people learn to read. Today, it is still used as a method of teaching reading in schools around the world.
This is a teaching method when young children learn to read by matching the sounds of the letters with the words they hear. This system is called “phonic learning.”
Phonic instruction emphasizes learning to recognize letter sounds and spell words using these sounds. Letter recognition, word decoding, fluency, and comprehension are all improved through phonics instruction.
There are a number of phonics activities that can help kids get the hang of letter-sound relationships.
