Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension.
Children learn the English alphabetic code: first they learn one way to read the 40+ sounds and blend these sounds into words, then learn to read the same sounds with alternative graphemes.
They experience success from the very beginning. Lively phonic books are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and ‘tricky’ words and, as children re-read the stories, their fluency increases.
Along with a thought-provoking introduction, prompts for thinking out loud and discussion, children are helped to read with a storyteller’s voice.
The children write every day, rehearsing out loud what they want to say, before spelling the sounds/words they know.
They practise handwriting every day, they learn correct letter formation and begin to write words.
We hope you enjoy practicing with your children the three new sounds sent to you to each week. If you have any questions about these please contact your child's teacher.
