Phonics is the teaching of the relationships between letters and how they sound
“Why are children reading and spelling so poorly?” The answer is… because they aren’t using phonics skills enough.
The link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonics explains why phonics teaching is so effective in improving students’ reading and spelling skills.
Recent research has been conducted by well known researcher Professor Chapman. Google ‘James Chapman and phonics’ and read about his findings on the teaching of reading.
Making a difference to your child’s reading and writing skills doesn’t need to be hard work!
Most words in English are easy to read and spell if you know how. Did you know that you can read and spell 75% of words following phonics rules, or the system or pattern of speech sounds, in the English language? The Weird Word Game is a phonics-based game. It teaches children how to read and spell most unknown words.
