Phonics is a huge field. I have a lot of ideas for this area but feel that the first emphasis needs to be on Phonological Awareness.
This area has been ignored for so long and needs to be an integral part of every Phonic Program. Otherwise, the foundations for studying phonics are missing. The implications are readily seen in many learning support programs!!!
Phonological Awareness is the ability to manipulate sounds without the letters.
I will present some ideas in my next email if people are interested. I can assure you that you will find the results not only in reading but in spelling as well.
