What are Phonics?
Words are made up of sounds. They are the building blocks of reading. We show children the sound of the letter combinations so they learn how to put the sounds together and can read the words. Phonics Building Blocks teaches children the tools they need to learn to read. Children and adults can learn how to merge separate sounds together to make it one word (for example, blending the sounds k, a, t makes CAT). They recognize similar word families and the sounds they make.
Some people are teaching sight words, and though there may be a limited number of words that could be recognized, ( as “a, the, is…” ) this does not teach children or give them the tools they need to read. Phonics are the tools they need to put letter sounds together to read words.
Your children can pick out the word families and trace the letters in this book. They can color the pictures as a reward.
Give your children a head start on reading!
