"What You Need To Know To Survive The Future"


When teaching your child to read phonics is the way to go.

    Teaching reading with Phonics is nothing to be intimidated about. They are just a visual representation of the spoken word. We all instinctively know the phonic sounds, because we use them every time we speak. We do not need tapes or MP3 recordings of the sounds. We just need to look at the words and say the word one sound at a time. Very similar to breaking a word down into syllables, except with phonics we break the word down further. 

     Also phonics are classed as voiced, unvoiced, nasal, long, short and a few others. You don’t really need to know all these. They are to do with the mechanics of saying the phonic sound. 

    To teach phonics to your child all you have to do is slow right down when pronouncing the word. Slow down until you are nearly saying the individual letter sounds. For example when saying “radio,” just stretch out the word when you speak it. Say “rraayyyddddoooo.” Get the picture. Saying it like that basically breaks the word down into phonics. The phonics are /r/-/a/-/d/-/ao/. 

     Don’t teach the alphabet sound letters to your child, as it causes more confusion. Normally when you stretch out the word, the child can work out which letters make which sound.

     Some children love the mechanics of reading and once they have a good grasp of phonics they can read anything, but they don’t always understand what they are reading. So always explain the words and the passage.
