What is Phonics?
Phonics instruction is a well-received method and series of techniques to teach you how read and write. The focus on learning the connections between sounds and spellings. The ultimate goal is to be able to come across unfamiliar words and sound them out. It begins with decoding words by applying letter-sound relationships this helps us learn to also pronounce words that are new to us. Once students begin to get a handle on letters and the sounds that they make, we pivot to making those sounds aloud and make them part of speech. Through the process students learn how to manipulate individual sounds and make the transition to writing. Once we are able to properly sound out and write words, we learn that words and sounds do not correlate with meaning. This is where we move on to other language arts skills that help us to share and take in information in high volumes.
