Before we can even consider teaching, our students and children how to read, we must first understand what the meaning of phonics is
Phonemes are the sounds that letters make when we say them out loud. Graphemes are the sound of two or three letters combined together to make a new sound. We call these Phonics.
Use the chart attached to understand all of the phonemes and phonics sounds which will allow you and your children to decode any word whilst learning to read sentences, paragraphs and even complete books.
This chart can be kept on the wall in the bedroom, in the library, or even on the fridge and used at any point when a child or a parent is attempting to decode a new word.
