Say the word phonics in a crowd, and the definitions will be as varied as the people. Even educators vary in what they think phonics is and does. Simply stated, phonics is the study of basic phonetics. The spellings of the 44 sounds of the English language, presented in a variety of sequences and levels of intensity, make up the content of all phonics programs. How a teacher chooses to teach phonics reveals his definition of reading and also his understanding of how most children learn to read. Whether using this phonics practice book to solidify your student's skills or as an introduction to the sounds, you will find the sequence of the skill presentation helpful. It ties directly to the order of skills chosen for the BJU Press First Grade Phonics And English program but will serve you well for any program you are teaching.
