Teaching Phonics If you are interested in teaching phonics to your child, or just want to find out more about this method of teaching reading, then read on. Our writing is a code in which our speech is broken down into individual sounds and represented by letters. When teaching your child to read using phonics, you are teaching them the correspondence between these letters and the sounds they represent – the sound-spelling relationships – and how to use these relationships to read words. Phonics instruction has been around for more than 200 years and different methods of teaching phonics have developed over the years. A commonly held view nowadays is that the best methods for teaching phonics are explicit and systematic.
