What we read on the printed page is sound. Though what we read appears as something we see, that writing has to be mentally transposed into what we say. Phonics combines these enabling reading the right way. Phonics enables proper pronunciation and spelling resulting in strong communication capabilities.
The conservative look-and-say method (A for Apple), enables the child to ‘read’ only those words that they have seen. The best time to introduce reading to a child is between the ages of 3 to 5 years, however this method is beneficial to older children as well as adults who need to develop good English reading, speaking and spelling skills.
What is Jolly Phonics?
Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centered approach to teaching literacy through Synthetic Phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, this multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve.
