Children need to understand how phonemes, the individual sounds of spoken language, relate to the letters in written language. Teaching children letter-sound correspondence, or the relationship between each letter symbol (or groups of letters) and the sounds they represent explicitly and systematically helps them to learn to read and write.
    PRF includes an analysis and discussion of phonics, a key component of reading instruction. Chapter two provides a well-written synopsis of evidence-based methods and approaches for phonics instruction. It helped me to understand the importance of systematic and explicit phonics instruction and how it relates to children’s word recognition, spelling and reading comprehension.

    Starfall is a free online resource that includes a wide variety of engaging activities to support phonics learning. The interactive books and games teach letter-sound relationships and word decoding using a levelled approach.  I like that the resource provides students with opportunities for practicing and applying their knowledge at home and at school.

    Describing effective ways to match books to phonics features, this article provides teachers with another method for teaching students about the relationships between letters and phonemes. This approach provides students with opportunities to practice using these relationships and solidifying their knowledge of the alphabet in authentic reading tasks.

    This activity encourages children to identify, pay attention to and manipulate the individual sounds in words. By focusing a range of activities on the letter name and sound of each letter in the alphabet, students have many opportunities to learn about the relationship between the letters and the individual phonemes of spoken language. This idea can be easily adapted to any classroom using a variety of on-hand materials and highlights the fact that engaging activities don't need to be…

    This activity illustrates how to use a fun and engaging song to support phonics instruction. Using a familiar rhythmic and repetitive song along with letter-sound cards, students practice and develop letter-sound correspondence and letter names. This activity can also be used as an informal assessment and is easily extended to make it more challenging as students progress.

    Phonics instruction is complex, so as a new teacher it can be helpful to use an established and effective program as part of a comprehensive approach to literacy instruction. Jolly Phonics, a well-designed, multi-sensory program that introduces letter sounds in a useful order and teaches phonemic awareness and letter formations is a method I would incorporate into my balanced approach to literacy learning.

    This article from Reading Rockets presented information regarding different types of phonics instructional approaches and methods, and summarized the research that favours systematic, explicit instruction. Broadening my understanding of instructional approaches will help me to evaluate phonics programs and identify proven strategies for teaching and learning.

    This phonics survey is a diagnostic assessment used by teachers to assess students' knowledge of and ability to use sound / letter correspondences. This tool, which is easy to administer and interpret, can be used to guide instruction and develop instructional goals to meet individual student's learning needs.
