Phonics Lessons

Using fun and exciting phonics lessons in the classroom can make teaching phonics to young students easier. When teaching phonics it’s helpful to use pictures of things students are familiar with, coupled with words they hear and say every day. It’s effective to use flash cards to teach phonics, because most children are visual learners, and they make visual associations between words, sounds, and objects. Young students will learn quicker if they’re asked to pronounce the words when they see the pictures, and if they’re asked to identify sounds associated with the words. Students will also be able to remember the concept better, if teachers us the method in their phonics lessons.

A great way of giving students practice is by using worksheets in your phonics lessons. It may be fun for children to color the pictures on the worksheets while identifying the sound of the object. It’s important for students to understand how the picture and the sound relate each other. Pictures must be recognizable, because students may not be able to read. This way of teaching learning will prove easier for the student and the teacher. It’s important that young students know their involvement in their own learning.

When students are able to read, it may be effective to use reading aloud in your phonics lessons.  It’s helpful if students are giving the chance to sound out words using the skills  they’ve learned. Young children will also feel proud if they’re reading a book on their own. However, it’s not a good idea to have children read aloud in front of the entire class. Reading aloud in front of a large group may make them feel insecure about their reading abilities. It’s best for students to only read aloud individually and to the teacher. If a student is in need of help, then it may be good for students to read to parents or aloud to their siblings. Teachers should always be aware of their student’s progress, and should make sure no student is left behind in their phonics lessons. Fun activities and plenty of attention can make learning phonics the most fun any child has.
