To a beginning reader, the act of reading can be a momentous task. Incorrectly taught, reading becomes a burdensome and arduous chore. Taught correctly, reading motivates the child to want to learn more.
In recent years, there has been much debate about how children should be taught to read. While the use of phonics has generally been advocated for this, the actual approach on how it should be used has been contentious. However, recent research carried out in the UK and elsewhere has shown that a method called systematic synthetic phonics (as opposed to other phonics approaches, such as analytical phonics) leads to better reading and spelling attainment among children.
Phonics Fun is our exciting new learn-to-read programme especially designed for the beginning reader. Built on the principles of systematic synthetic phonics, Phonics Fun takes advantage of interactive multimedia to make learning to read even more fun and stimulating.
THE PHONICS LESSONS
Children are taught three main things:
Children also learn to recognize specific “tricky” words – words that are not spelt or pronounced according to the phonic “rules” that they are taught.
There are also fun and exciting activities designed to reinforce what is taught in the lessons.
#WHAT IS PHONICS?
Phonics is simply the connection between letter symbols and sounds. Using phonics, children are taught the relationships between letters and sounds. Children then use these relationships to read, write and speak words.
There are several kinds of phonics instruction. In analytical phonics, for example, children learn to read whole words by sight, often in the context of meaningful text. To deduce which sounds go with which letters, they compare and contrast the similar-sounding words (pat/mat, sigh/high). Letter sounds are taught after reading has already begun. In synthetic phonics, children are first taught the sounds that go with a few letters; they then use this knowledge to sound out words written with those letters. More letter-sounds and words to decode with these letters are gradually added.
