Connecting sounds in a word to lettersPhonics refers to the connection between letters and sounds. In learning phonics, we can translate written text into words and begin to write the words we hear or think.
We will be learning the connection between written letters and spoken sounds. A strong understanding of phonics will helps us read unfamiliar words and develop strong reading skills. We begin by reading each individual sound in words. Then we begin to read "chunks" of letters, recognizing those groups of letters from other words we have read.
