Phonics helps you learn to read and spell. Words are like codes and phonics teaches children how to crack the reading code. Phonics is indeed an important part of any reading development programme.
Phonics teaching is often referred to as ‘synthetic phonics’.
Phonics helps teach children the sounds made by individual groups, for example, the letter ‘c’ makes a 'k' sound.
It trains children how to merge separate sounds together to make it one word, for example, blending the sounds 'k', 'a', 't' makes CAT.
This book is ideally meant for children from ages 3–8. However, do remember that children are made readers on the laps of the parents and with the nurturing of the alma mater. Grab this book, it’s the best thing you can do to make children pronounce correctly.
