Teaching kids phonics helps them develop the skills they need in order to read, write and speak properly. Phonics is understanding that letters and sounds have a connection. Simply put, it’s the connection between what the letters and sounds can actually sound out and what those letters and sounds can mean. Phonics provides beginning readers with the tools they need to sound out words. For instance, children learn that the sound D has the identical sound as the letter D.
Kids begin reading from a very young age using phonics. They are taught how to read by listening to their mother and father and being taught the sounds that words make. When they hear these sounds on their own, children begin to recognize words and understand what they’re saying. Even at this early stage, children are able to read phonetically, which is why teaching them how to read correctly and improve their reading skills starts with phonics.
The most important part of teaching kids phonics is developing a set of phonemes for each letter of the alphabet. phonemes are simply words that sound the same. Letters that are commonly referred to as phonic sounds include A, I, O and R. There are several different sets of phonemes that can be used depending on the sound the letter makes. You will need a chart to show which phonemes you will need for certain letters. These charts are called flash cards and are very similar to the cards that teachers use in teaching children to write.
If you want to teach your child to read, then you must start teaching kids phonics early. At first, you should just teach your child the sounds for the letters that they already know. For example, if your child says the letter “a” then you simply have to say the sound “ah”. Once your child starts saying the letters properly then you can move on to teaching them the other letters in the alphabet.
Teaching Kids Phonics
When teaching kids phonics, it is important that you do it in a fun way. Your child may not always understand what you are saying and this can result in them becoming frustrated. As long as you stay consistent and are always asking questions, your child will get the hang of reading. Once your child starts reading, they will love learning how to read and will develop a reading habit.
When teaching children how to read, the sounds that they make are going to come across as a spoken word. Children learn to read from left to right and that is why they should be taught phonics as well. They should start out reading the phonetic sounds of the letters that they are learning to recognize. If they hear the letters spoken, then it will make it easier for them to learn how to spell them out.
When they hear these sounds spoken, they should practice saying them out loud as well as saying the letters in the correct order. You want to have your child say all of the phonetic sounds that they hear just as if they were saying them out loud. This can be very helpful when they are learning the sounds of letters, especially those that they might not be familiar with. Once they start using phonics in sentences and in conversation, you will notice that they are starting to learn to read faster and are saying things more accurately.
Teaching your child to read using phonics is a great way for you to bond with your child and for your child to start thinking clearer. They will enjoy practicing their sounds with you and this can result in them being able to read faster than they ever could before. They will also begin to get better at spelling words and this can help them with their academic achievements. The more they are able to read and spell words the more time that they will be able to spend studying to become a better person. Take the time to get your child started with phonics instruction today and watch as they begin to think more clearly and to read faster.
