Phonics and Your Child – What can you do to help?
To learn to read children need to
- learn 44 sounds (phonemes) matching them to the corresponding letters/letter groups (graphemes)
- learn to read words using sound blending techniques
- In school we use Read Write Inc to teach phonics – below is a letter from Ruth Miskin who wrote the RWInc phonics programme. She is one of the UK’s leading authorities on teaching children to read. For more information about phonics, please take a look at these resources from the Ruth Miskin website.
