11. Why Phonics are Important: with Alison Perry

Phonics is the relationship between letters and sounds. Simple as that. It is the basis for reading and spelling, and unfortunately, not enough children in Australia are getting the correct phonics instruction in their early years, making literacy acquisition difficult. Today we talk about; what phonics are, the role phonics play in learning to read and spell, and in the wider acquisition of “literacy”, Alison gives us some of her favorite phonics activities, we talk about the role that phonics can play in teaching children with dyslexia and literacy difficulties how to read and spell, AND we discuss how Australian schools are using phonics already, and possibly ways for schools wanting to improve their approach to reading, spelling, and overall literacy.
