According to Oxford Dictionaries, phonics is a method of teaching people to read by correlating sounds with letters or groups of letters in an alphabetic writing system. This sounds like a complicated task, but it really is a simple but methodical one. As a parent, you can encourage your child’s phonics mastery right at home.
We’ve heard about phonics for many years. In fact, many of us have childhood memories of practicing phonics at school, painstakingly studying lettering until our brains recognized them and our voices pronounced them properly. While this practice may have seem tedious at the time, it was a demanding but rewarding task required for the reading that we as adults practice effortlessly today.
Below are 7 simple ways to enhance your child’s reading skills that will also inspire a love of reading!
