Relating sounds to letters is the major focus of phonics instruction. Ensuring children understand the relationship between letters and sounds allow students to learn to apply this knowledge while reading. Effective phonics instruction should be explicit about the correlation between phonemic awareness and reading.

INSTRUCTION Jolly Phonics is an effective program to use with students. Jolly Phonics teaches studens to read and write using "synthetic phonics" and is extremely multi sensory and active for students to take part in. Jolly Phonics is quite simple for teachers to learn to teach and students tend to enjoy the fun nature of the program.

INSTRUCTION As previously discussed in class, Starfall is another excellent program for teaching students to read through phonics instruction. Starfall is extremely interactive and easy for students to navigate on their own or with the help of a teacher. Starfall has a low- cost membership program that expands the free content already available. Research has shown great results in helping students to learn to read through this program.

INSTRUCTION: Use students names to create a game that focuses on letter sounds and phonemic awareness! This activity expects students to identify the initial sounds in names of their peers. Students are motivated by the use of their names.

INSTRUCTION The "Name Game" is a fun activity to play with students to build awareness of sounds and letters. Students often really enjoy using their names to learn, as it is often the first word they learn to spell. The teacher should explain to students that they will be given clues about someone's name in the class based on syllables and initial sounds and the students must guess whose name it is in the class. Once the students guess the name correctly, the class sounds out the name…

INSTRUCTION "Push the Sound" is another great activity for students to practice decoding and letter-sound recognition. Students will be provided with a word (usually 3 letters) along with magnetic letters. While looking at the letters, students are encouraged to push each letter sound as they hear it. This will allow students to visualize the letters as they hear the sounds. The point of the activity is to blend the letters together and figure out the corresponding word.

The teacher and stage 1 students take turns making letter sounds and identifying their corresponding letters. Once the letter and sound are matched, students can be invited to think about what words might start and end with the sounds.

INSTRUCTION "Guess my Letter" is a fun game to play to ensure young students are practicing and reviewing their letter-sound recognition. Individual students come up in front of the class one at a time to say a letter-sound they are thinking of. For example, a student would say "Sssss" and the rest of the class will have to guess which letter corresponds to the sound. Students will then list a few words that begin with the letter S.

Phonics Instruction: The Basics

UNDERSTANDING Reading Rockets is a fantastic resource for teachers to use to better their phonics instruction and ensure understanding. This resource breaks down phonics instruction down to the basics and lays out various approaches to phonics instruction for teachers to refer back to and improve their own practice. Some defined approaches are: Synthetic phonics, analytic phonics, analogy-based phonics, phonics through spelling, embedded phonics, onset-rime phonics instruction.

INSTRUCTION: An important component of learning letters and letter sounds is repetition. Teaching Jolly-Phonics letter sounds allows students to learn these sounds while associating them to an action to FINISH Alphabet Sounds, Letter Sounds, Alphabet Letters, Phonetic Sounds, Letter Flashcards, Vocal Exercises, Cute Songs, Jolly Phonics, Balanced Literacy

INSTRUCTION "Alphabet in my mouth" is a fun way to incorporate solidyfing letter- sounds and phonics into daily teaching practice. Students tend to enjoy learning through song, and incorporating actions makes it even more engaging. Although learning the song can take some time and practice, students will use this song when engaging in phonics activities in the future.

ASSESSMENT This assessment assess students abilities to identify initial sounds in a word. This assessment is geared towards a kindergarten aged student and is valuable in identifying where the student is struggling or if the student is able to move on to identifying ending sounds or middle sounds in a word.
