- Letter-sound relationships: Understanding the connection between letters and the sounds they make.
- Blending and segmenting: Skills needed to decode and sound out words (blending) and break words down into individual sounds (segmenting).
- Phonics rules: Learning the common patterns of sound-symbol relationships in English.
- Vocabulary building: Expanding children's word knowledge.
- Comprehension strategies: Developing an understanding of what is being read.
- Speech mechanics: Practicing intonation, pronunciation, and articulation to develop clear and natural-sounding speech.

When should a child learn phonics?

Your child should start learning phonics as early as possible, preferably in preschool. In a fun and engaging environment, young kids can be taught pre-reading skills starting from 2 years old with the help of songs, nursery rhymes, poems, phonic games and other activities. It could be a great foundation for their future communication skills and literacy journey.

Programmes for primary school students later focus on learning writing to achieve basic literacy.

What is systematic synthetic phonics?

Systematic synthetic phonics programme teach children the basics of reading by creating a link between letters and the phonemes they represent. This way students focus on the sound rather than spelling.

How to choose the right phonics class for my child?

Parents should consider these factors:
- Your child's age and current literacy level: Programs cater to different age groups and skill levels.
- Learning style: Some programs are more play-based, while others are more structured. Choose one that aligns with your child's learning preferences.
- Your goals: Do you want a program that focuses on basic phonics skills, reading fluency, or addressing specific learning needs?

Don't hesitate to contact program providers to discuss their curriculum and approach.

Before enrolling your child in a phonics program, a reading assessment can be an invaluable tool. This assessment, whether a literacy assessment, proficiency assessment, or simply a reading assessment, can pinpoint your child's current reading level and identify any areas that might require extra support. With this knowledge, you can choose a program that aligns with their specific needs and provides the right level of challenge to ensure a smooth progression.
