Only beginner readers need to sound out every word as they read all the time. But, they will still need to work out new and long words.
Imagine trying to read the word said or does by blending each letter! These are sometimes called high frequency tricky words , or Red words. These words just have to be learned by sight and flashcard-type games are a good way to practise these.

Schools using a synthetic phonics scheme are likely to be sending home decodable books. This means the books contain mostly words that children can read by sounding out to get them off to a good start with independent reading. After your child has read a page, you can read it aloud again, to make sure that the story is enjoyed and understood. Pictures are great for sharing and talking about a story which is really important too!
Teach your child how to write the letters as the letter sounds are learned. Lots and lots of books! Carry on sharing and reading lots and lots of stories and information books to and with your child. Praise and hugs! Most importantly, remember that your child will learn much faster with encouragement, praise and hugs. The following websites will give you further information on phonic reading schemes and more detailed phonics advice.
Ask any of my buddies about me and it won't be long before they mention to you that 'she reads'. How we read didn't particularly grab my attention until we had children. I think our first child was 5 months old when I began delving into the literature of Reading and Teaching reading.
Which has brought me to this book by Wiley Blevins, who for awhile was the lone beacon of Phonics is Best, back when Whole Word was a thing. I'm still fascinated by how children learn to read. I think most mothers know inherently that Phonics is best.
Trendy research didn't effect our population much. That's why Dick and Jane continue to sell to this day. What the author brings us --and teachers, principals, and administrators-- is science and technique.
Not boring science, but enough science Making Sense of Phonics is an extremely important addition to the field of early reading. This highly-readable and practical book provides teachers with the instructional routines and strategies critical to teaching students how to decode words efficiently. This book should be required reading for all teacher candidates at colleges of education around the country and would offer a great refresher course in phonics for current elementary teachers.
Phonics made easy
Beck's brilliant work continues to move the field forward and improve the quality of education for our young learners. I had a choice to purchase this text or another text for a grad course. I bought them both. This textbook isn't just a textbook.
Lots of great, helpful suggestions for teaching phonics and fluency! When I discovered how profoundly dyslexic my husband was he covers well, has a Master's degree I looked for ways to help him with his primary challenge, spelling. He had no native way to assess his spelling and since he was bright, just got passed grade to grade. He survived school with sheer memorization. But spelling has remained elusive to him through adulthood. Phonics and Blevins' works were instrumental in giving us a tool to help him with spelling.
For whatever reason and I know this is controversial , this type of word study and drills helped him improve his spelling accuracy.

This is a great work book which in my opinion is also appropriate for adult learners. We went through this book together and things which seemed intuitive to me I grew up with phonics were completely new to him. I believe phonics is one way to give a learner a toolbox Two Sounds Good to practice sound distinction. Have two words on the board representing the two different sounds you would like to practice, e. You would then show the students pictures and get them to put those words under the appropriate column. You would, however, have to give numbers before every word to help everybody keep track of choices.
You would focus on a specific sound and read out words containing that sound.

The students would have to decide if that sound was found in the beginning, middle or end of the word by writing the sound in that appropriate column. This is a good listening activity with some implications for positive phonics reinforcement. Ball and Cap Game The students pass around a hat and a ball. When the music stops, the student with the hat must take out a piece of paper with a letter or letters written on it then read out its sound, not the letter name.
What is Phonics?
The student with the ball must guess the letter s. Pen and Eraser Students have a pen and an eraser in front of them. You have two sounds you would like to practice, e. When you say a word beginning with one of those sounds, the students should pick up the appropriate object for upper levels, the sound can be in any part of the word not just the beginning. If you say a word not incorporating one of the sounds, the students should make a big X with their arms. This can evolve into a pair contest with one pen and one eraser for every two students.
The students would aim to be the quickest to pick up the object after you read out a word.
