Phonics means the sounds associated with individual letters and groups of letters, that when we blend them together enable us to pronounce words correctly. But there is far more to it than that.
The Phonics by Phone project draws on the expertise of experienced educators and education resource publishers.
The core strategies of the Phonics by Phone audio units, and the back-up materials on this website, are drawn from best practice in synthetic phonics teaching around the world. The order of the more than 42 sounds taught follows that of other widely-available phonics schemes used by thousands of schools, but specially adapted to suit each country”s national kindergarten curriculum and policies on mother tongue teaching.
The idea of Phonics by Phone is that each sound is represented by a letter or letters which are “code” for that sound. These codes and their associated example words draw on an alphabetic code created by Debbie Hepplewhite and Phonics International.
