When your child starts school, phonics becomes a big part of everyday life, transforming them from a non-reader to a child who is capable of reading fluently and spelling mostly! Typical activities for teaching Phase 1 phonics include 'listening' walks, playing and identifying instruments, action songs, learning rhymes and playing games like I Spy. In Phase 2, children begin to learn the sounds that letters make phonemes. There are 44 sounds in all. Some are made with two letters, but in Phase 2, children focus on learning the 19 most common single letter sounds. By the end of Phase 2 children should be able to read some vowel-consonant VC and consonant-vowel-consonant CVC words , and to spell them out.
