P...is for Phonics.
Phonics is a method of teaching elementary reading and spelling based on the phonetic interpretation of ordinary spelling.

Phonics plays a very important role in the students' reading fluency and comprehension. According to Educators Publishing Service (EPS), its research indicates that students who learn phonics do better in all aspects of reading - word identification, accuracy of oral reading, and silent reading comprehension and fluency - than those who do not learn it. This is also true in spelling.

Children are very lucky nowadays. Phonetics exercises are readily available online.

  • The links are awesome! I can't wait to play with them with my little cousins. I don't want to wait until I am a teacher.
