What is Phonics?


More about language arts for kids: Phonics is a method of teaching beginners to read and pronounce words by learning to associate letters or letter groups with the sounds they represent. The twenty-six letters of our alphabet are used to symbolize about 44 English speech sounds. Phonics focuses first on learning vowel and consonant sounds or one letter sounds, then moves on to two letter sounds, and finally onto three letter sounds. Once students have mastered the relationships of the letters to the sounds, they can pronounce printed words by blending the sounds together.
