As a parent, one of the most important things in life is seeing your child do well in school and life, and one key stepping stone on the path is becoming a good reader.
For teachers, it’s all the same, as The Department of Education states that deploying a phonics education at an early age can also help children develop culturally, socially, and emotionally.
Research shows that phonics, when taught correctly, is one of the most effective ways of teaching children to learn to read, and can lay a proper foundation for the success of a child. In our school, we are always coming up with fun ways to practice our phonics.
For this activity, we learned about the letter N for Neptune. To begin with, students were directed to locate the letter N in the alphabet.
Following this, they were asked to say the sound that the letter makes. After, they sang a silly song about words that start with this letter. Finally, students were asked to place jewels onto this fun letter N Neptune tray!
