Learning to read is a fun and exciting time in a childs life, and being able to decode words is an important skill that gives youn...g readers the confidence and the ability to read new and unfamiliar words. Phonics is a method of teaching beginning readers to decode by learning the spoken sounds associated with written letters and letter pairs. To become skilled readers, children must internalize these associations in order to read words without having to sound them out letter by letter or part by part. In addition, phonics instruction gives new readers the tools necessary for making the important connection between sounds and their spellings. Becoming fluent or automatic with these skills helps develop reading fluency and builds a strong foundation in reading comprehension, an important skill for academic success.Upon your childs completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart and stickers to track progress and celebrate your childs success.Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids® Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun.
