Phonics

We teach children to read by blending sounds and write by segmenting sounds.

 

Blending  means combining sounds to make a word. Divide the word into the individual sounds. For example /s/ /i/ /t/

 

Segmenting means using knowledge of sounds to break it down to /p/ /i/ /n/ in order to write the word.

 

 

Below are some high frequency words and tricky words which children are to learn to read onsight
