Why Phonics Instruction?
Phonics instruction teaches children the relationships between the letters (graphemes) of written language and the individual sounds (phonemes) of spoken language. It teaches children to use these relationships to read and write words.
How The Family Readers promote phonics instruction
|The Family Readers storybooks are divided into 12 sets of six books each.|
|Sets 1-6:||Short Vowels|
|Sets 7-9:||Long Vowels|
|Sets 9-10:||Consonant Blends, Numbers, Word Endings|
|Set 11:||Phonics Clusters and Combinations|
|Set 12:||Sight Word Practice, Diphthong, Digraphs, and Hard and Soft c and g.|
A child will learn to read by:
using language in conversation
listening and responding to stories read aloud
recognizing and naming the letters of the alphabet
listening to the sounds of spoken language
connecting sounds to letters to figure out the "code" of reading
reading often so that recognizing words becomes easy and automatic
learning and using new words
understanding what is read
The Goal of Phonics Instruction
The goal of phonics instruction is to help children learn and use the alphabetic principle—the understanding that there are systematic and predictable relationships between written letters and spoken sounds. Knowing these relationships will help children recognize familiar words accurately and automatically, and "decode" new words. In short, knowledge of the alphabetic principle contributes greatly to children's ability to read words both in isolation and in connected text.
National Institute for Literacy (NIFL)
Our reading-with-phonics storybooks teach children valuable skills:
Learn consonant sounds.
Learn that a, e, i, o, and u are vowels.
Learn sounds of digraphs. Example: /sh/ in shell.
Learn sounds of consonant blends. Example: /bl/ in block and /str/ in string.
Learn short vowel word families. Example: at, an, op, on, it, in.
Break words into syllables.
Find familiar words within unknown words. Example: mat in matter.
Add or take away letters to make new words. Example: When asked to take away the letter t in the word tan, can the child say the word an? Can the child add the letter t to an to make the word ant?
