Phonics Lesson Plans

kindergarten reading program for Preschool-literacy

Phonics lesson plans is a preschool literacy program that would enrich children reading. Some of the major preschool activities include phonics as their kindergarten reading programs and spelling skills. Many non-English speaking adults also find it easier to learn English via phonics because this program helps one to pronounce words easily with the technique of combining different sounds.

Reading can be mastered by way of phonics worksheets, phonics games, children poems, children’s stories, or kindergarten sight words. I shall discuss briefly on what is phonics, sightreading versus phonics, rules of phonics …etc

Every preschool kid can learn to read with confidence. It is only a matter of time and effort enhanced or quickened by the correct method of learning. With the phonics lesson plans, a child can learn to read independently once he masters the skill of the phonic sounds and the rules of phonics.

English is an alphabetic language. The combination of letters provides different sounds and when joined or blended together, they give the pronunciation for the written words. This system is an advantage over other languages that uses symbols, as in Chinese or Arabic. There are only 26 letters in the alphabet which is used to form over 500,000 words in the English language, of which there are 44 different sounds with the different combinations of letters. Once a child masters the different sounds he will be able to read confidently.

Most people avoid the use of the phonics curriculum because they feel that the English language has many exceptions and so learning standard sounds cannot help a kid to master the many exceptions.

Every letter has a sound and there are rules with the different combination of sounds. Many think that the English pronunciations are too irregular mainly because they have not gone beyond the basic rules of phonics. With the basic rules, one can master more than half of the English words, and with some practice and understanding of the other patterns and guidelines, there are really not as many irregularities as an amateur would presume.

For a deeper understanding of phonetics, note that there are long and short vowels, voiced and voiceless consonants, dipthongs and other symbols.
