Phonics

Phonics

Phonics is a way to teach children how to read and write. Your child will participate in a 30 minute Phonics session every day to learn the skills of early reading and writing. We learn 4 sounds every week.

"Sound talking" and "Sweep": This strategy teaches your child to read individual graphemes and sweep the sounds together. For example, "b-oa-t boat"

"Segment": This strategy teaches your child to say the sounds they can hear in words. For example, when writing 'look' your child will say l as the first sound.
