Phonetics (Reading is Fun)

 

Phonics Basics

Many parents have heard about phonics and many have not. They put forward many questions: What does my child’s teacher try to say when she talks about phonics? Why my child needs to learn phonics to learn to read,  when I have not taken phonics lessons? What is the right time to start Phonics lessons? You’ll get answers to these questions and more below.

What is phonics?

Phonics is a branch of linguistics where the sounds and physical properties of human speech sounds are studied. It is simply the system of relationships between letters and sounds in a language. When your child learns that the letter B has the sound of /b/ and that “tion” sounds like /shun/he/she is learning phonics.

Study of Phonics is highly essential in every child education. It is not strange to find parents who question the importance of phonics reading in the education of their children. Such parents believe that children will naturally master the different sounds of human speech since the ability to use language is innate in every human being. Their view may be persumable but they are not actually correct.

 

Why is phonics important?

 

Children have complications in reading because they are not able to recognize the sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the words they read. Phonics reading will help children to recognize and blend sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the word they read. This will help them to improve in their reading skills and efficiency. In other words, it will be difficult for a child to improve in his reading skills if the teaching of phonics is removed from their curriculum. Phonics encourages children to recognize text fluently by teaching them certain specific language rules relating to the pronunciation of words and how they are represented in a written form. As these rules are learned it results in an ever expanding vocabulary. Children develop the ability to be able to recognize specific patterns within words, which allows them to identify other words with similar phonemes.. Knowing phonics also help children know which letters to use as they write words.

 

Put very simply, the teaching of phonics is often designed to be fun for children. It is believed that this enhances the learning experience, and ultimately results in a more thorough development of reading and writing skills.

When is phonics usually taught?

Your children learn phonics in kindergarten till grade two. They practice reading and spelling words containing those letters and patterns..

Children vary in the amount of phonics guidance they need and when they need it. Some children need very little phonics guidance, while others still benefit from phonics guidance even after class three. Many children with dyslexia benefit from phonics instruction even at later stage.

Benefits

Children learn to read by developing an understanding of how  sounds are associated with individual letters, groups of letters, and finally full words. Learning to read with phonics can be extremely effective, especially if your child learns to read at an early age. Here are some of the biggest benefits of learning phonics.

Learning Phonics Helps Children Decode Words

One of the major benefits of learning phonics is that it teaches children to decode words on their own, which means they need less conclusively help with reading. When children learn the sounds, they can decode words they have not encountered before in their reading. This supports children to learn new words independently and read more confidently.

Learning Phonics Expands a Child’s Vocabulary

Another influence of learning phonics is that it gives children a foundation for learning new words, adding to the words they already know. Through phonics, children learn parts of words, which they can remember when they encounter new words they have never seen before. This makes learning to read much easier in the long run.

 

Learning Phonics Encourages Children to Recognize Text Fluently

When children learn phonics, they also learn critical language rules that help with fluency down the road. Learning phonics involves an introduction to specific language rules related both to the pronunciation of the words and also how they are represented in written form. Through the phonics system, children develop the ability to be able to recognize patterns both within words and between words, while developing essential language skills that will be drawn upon again and again.

Learning Phonics Enables Stronger Reading Comprehension

Since phonics readers become more fluent more quickly, they are able to stop focusing on the individual letters of each word (as this becomes automatic) and are thus free to focus on the meaning of what they are reading. This, in turn, supports a stronger development of reading comprehension skills overall, as well as a superior understanding of the language as a whole

Learning Phonics Boosts Writing Ability

Another benefit of learning phonics is that it ultimately helps children learn to write by using written lessons and activities to help children master both reading and writing skills. Children also tend to develop their spelling skills much more quickly, as they are learning which letters or combinations of letters create sounds in words that they write.

Learning Phonics Helps Kids Develop Strong Thinking Skills

Over the many decades in which phonics systems have been used to teach young children to read, research has found that phonics-trained students demonstrated superior performance in the area of critical thinking over the long term. Since the English language doesn’t always follow predictable rules, with the help of the tools provided by the phonics system, young readers are able to develop logic, reasoning, and analysis skills, which translates to stronger thinking skills overall.

Learning Phonics Benefits Kids with Special Needs

Phonics has long been the recommended system for ESL students (kids for whom English is a second language), as the system is accessible for students and makes the transition from the native language easier. However, research has also indicated that the predictable rules and easy to understand basics offered by phonics instruction can benefit children with dyslexia and those kids struggling with a hearing impairment.

Learning Phonics Makes Reading and Writing Fun

KOFALT GLOBAL Lessons for teaching phonics to young children are designed specifically to be fun and engaging, with stories and games incorporated into lessons along with visual material featuring vibrant colors and memorable images that children come to associate with the learning-to-read process. This approach to reading not only enhances the learning experience but ultimately results in a more thorough development of reading and writing skills.

Learning phonics provides an excellent way for children to read both quickly and effectively, giving them a systematic approach to reading upon which they can build and expand their skills. While phonics may not be the best reading solution for everyone, research shows it is highly effective for most children
