Phonics and it's Need

Phonics Sounds

Phonics is a branch of linguistics where the sounds and physical properties of human speech sounds are studied. Simply put, it is a system of relationships between letters and sounds in a language.

Phonics is an effective tool and a multi-sensory method to teach young children to read and spell as they are taught to link an individual letter or letter combination with its appropriate sound and then blend the sounds to form words. The goal of phonics is to enable 'beginning readers' i.e. young pre-schoolers to decode new written words by sounding them out so that they are able to read and spell well.

Phonics is appropriate for young children because, as a method, it:

  • is easy to follow and more systematic.
  • does not rely on memorizing words, which children may find very difficult.
  • Is impactful, as it employs a multi-sensory approach; multiple intelligences like auditory, visual, kinesthetic ability of children are put to use.
  • Is fun, as use of activities, worksheets, games etc. is made to enhance learning.

Research shows that phonics is the most effective way of teaching young children to read, write and spell. It is particularly helpful for children at the pre-primary and primary levels.As a teaching method it is thought to provide many benefits to children who are just beginning to learn the English language.

Phonics helps kids to

  • decipher words on their own
  • decode words they encounter while reading
  • learn new words and build up their vocabulary
  • read faster, independently ,effectively and accurately from very early on
  • master writing skills
  • develop their spelling skills
  • improve their independent writing ability
  • better their comprehension skills
  • initiate progressive learning

All in all, phonics makes it much easier for the children to acquire, learn and master literacy skills of reading, writing and spelling.

Not only these, we must understand that children who are able to communicate ably in Englishare bound to perform well in their academicsbecause they can use English as a means to read more and more and further their knowledge. Such children actually enjoy success in school. They experience less stress and are high on self-esteem and self-confidence. They, thus, develop a remarkable personality.
