Try These Fun Phonics Lesson to Teach Letters and Sounds


[2-Minute Tutorial:] [Connecting Letters and Sounds] [in Everyday Activities] [Elizabeth Babbin] Children with reading issues often struggle to connect letters to sounds or to rhyme words. Learning how sounds fit together to make words is a critical step toward becoming a good reader and speller. This is often a big issue for kids with dyslexia. That’s why it’s important to help your child practice these skills often and in a way that’s fun and low-stress for both of you. For example, you might see the letters “C” and “H” on the handles of a faucet while you’re helping your child wash up. You can say, “Look, this handle says ‘C’ because it’s the cold water, c-c-c-cold. Can you think of other words that start with a ‘c’ sound?” Or at the grocery store, you can make a game out of looking for items that start with the same sound as your child’s name. Rhyming’s easy to work into everyday life, too. Just singing rhyming songs together is a terrific way to help your child have fun with rhyme. Also, if you’re out and about and your child points out, for example, a cat, you can suggest that you try to see how many words you can both think of that rhyme with “cat.” Take this idea one step further by helping your child break apart the sounds in words. So you can say, “Hey, there’s a chair. What word would we have if we took away the ‘ch’ from ‘chair’?” When your child figures out that the answer is “air,” then ask, “What word would you make if you added a ‘h’ sound to the beginning of ‘air’?” You can keep going from there. Don’t be afraid to include nonsense words like “splort” or “quiggle.” Silly words make this fun and still reinforce the important idea that sounds can be added or removed from words to change them. When kids are struggling to learn the basics of early reading, reducing their frustration is really important. Try ideas like these to encourage your child to be silly together and to enjoy language and word play. And if your child continues to struggle with things like rhyming and sound deletion games, talk to your child’s teacher.
