Amazing Benefits of Phonics for young Kids

Posted by My Chapter One on 02.03.2022

Phonics is a method that teaches children to decode words required for reading, writing, and comprehension. It helps a child to read and speak fluently. 

26 words of the English alphabet. Does that mean there are just 26 sounds to them? No, not really. There are essentially 44 sounds that one should be able to identify to be able to read fluently with some variation dependent on accent and articulation. Now that’s quite a number. And to master this art, a scientific approach is what will yield the best results. And that’s exactly what Phonics classes do!

Learning spellings by heart is a memory game but if any skill is learned in a systematic and logical manner, it stays with us forever! Phonics is one such effective way to teach reading and spelling to children. If a systematic way of teaching phonics is introduced in the early years, it is sure to have significant benefits for children in terms of reading and writing skills right from kindergarten to forever.

Have you ever wondered why is it K for King and not C for Cing; why is it K for Kite and not a Cite; And if C is for Cat then why not K for Kat? Wait! Did you just think about kit kat? Ditto. 😊 

G is for Goose and G is for gender. Both these sounds don’t really resemble! English is a funny language we all have heard. But is it a funny language or a phunny language? This is why and where knowledge of  phonics is needed.

Why is it needed?

Enrolling a child into a phonics-based program develops crucial reading, learning skills, and cognitive skills like working memory and auditory processing which, as per research are critical for reading. It is an effective tool and a multi-sensory approach to teach young children how to read properly. 

Amazing Benefits of Phonics

  • Reduces the spelling errors
  • Helps in scoring better marks

What is the right age to start phonics?

As per research, children are ready to start phonics programs once they have learned to identify all the letters of the alphabet – which is usually somewhere between 3-4 years of age. Toddlers can understand the basic concept of phonics only when they already know what the letters look like and can name them. The earlier a child is introduced to a phonics class, the easier and faster the journey into the world of reading!

How to choose a good phonics class for your child?

In today’s times, most preschools and schools use the phonics approach to reading and writing.  To ensure a proper approach and way to teach phonics, it is important to have professionally trained phonics teachers. Phonics, if used effectively and if introduced at the right age can make reading a piece of cake for children who are starting school. Phonics works best when it is integrated into a comprehensive literacy program which includes practice in comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, writing, and thinking. One such program is “Turbo Phonics - for a Head start in Reading” by My Chapter One

This program for toddlers aims at making the children ready for school with phonics training, fun activities, reading fun, storytelling, in a playful way. And this is not all, it’s fully loaded with a home kit with phonics worksheets, sight word posters and lots of fun surprises!!

phonics

Phonics is a fundamental literary element that provides a solid foundation for any child to learn how to read. In the absence of this crucial principle, speaking and reading words fluently might be an uphill task for the child. It is crucial to learn the phonics alphabet and to be able to utilize this skill to master reading any word correctly.
