What is phonics?

Phonics is a method of teaching reading which deals with the relationship between the letters and sounds. One cannot learn to read effectively without an understanding of relationship between the letters and letter sounds, and how they connect to form the words.

Why is phonics important?

Learning phonics will help kids learn to read and spell. Written language can be compared to a code, so knowing the sounds of letters and letter combinations will help your child decode words as he reads. Knowing phonics will also help child know which letters to use as he writes words.

When is phonics usually taught?

Child will probably learn phonics in kindergarten through second grade. In kindergarten, children usually learn the sounds of the consonant letters (all letters except the vowels a, e, i, o, and u). First- and second-graders typically learn all the sounds of letters, letter combinations, and word parts. They practice reading and spelling words containing those letters and patterns.

Children vary in the amount of phonics instruction they need and when they need it. Some children need very little phonics instruction, while others still benefit from phonics instruction in third grade.
