The Power of Phonics| Reading
One of the most important skills in life is knowing how to read. A lot of students around Qatar speak so many languages that sometimes English can even be up to their third language learnt. We know that this can often be a challenge so we would like to share with you some recommendations.
One of the most important steps to start the reading journey with the students is the key skills found by starting with Phonics. This includes learning the sounds and letters and how to put them together to make and read simple sentences.
We thought it would be worthwhile to share with you an app that can support your child with this if you feel that it may benefit them.
Reading Eggs aims to help young children learn basic phonics skills through the fun exploration of phonics games as they make their journeys through different self-paced games. Reading Eggs teaches letter-sound combinations with one-on-one instructional lessons, games, and e-books.
The variety of fun activities within each lesson provides the repetition needed for these skills to become part of the child’s long-term memory.
The app helps your children learn phonics, letters, numbers, and the alphabet. The app features a series of games to help kids recognize letters, associate them with phonic sounds, play with the alphabet letters and numbers.
This app is also free which is always a good factor.
It doesn’t matter what age or class your child is in, if they find reading a challenge it is never too late to start! Phonics is the secret key to this and once the child can break down words into sounds it can enhance the students’ ability to use unknown words that they have never even heard of before.
