Phonics for kids

Phonics are essential when it comes to the proces of learning to read. That’s why most (online) reading games use phonics to enhance this proces. But what are phonics? Phonics are sounds that are nessecary to understand letters and words. They are often used as part of teaching methods. In these teaching methods children (people) learn to read by correlating sounds with letters or groups in an alphabetic writing system. For kids this is fun and playful way to learn to read.

The National Reading Panel determined that systematic phonics instructions leads to significant positive benefits for students in
kindergarten through sixth grade and for children with difficulty learning to read. Kindergartners who receive systematic beginning phonics instruction read better and spell better than other children, and first graders are better able to decode and spell words.

 

The students also show significant improvement in their ability to understand what they read. Similarly, phonics instruction helps older children spell and decode text better, although their understanding does not necessarily improve.
