There are a ton of resources that can be used to teach phonics. Some of the ones we supply include:
The best and most popular way to teach phonics is in a systematic way, starting from simple to complex activities. This often involves learning the names of letters and then sounding out each letter. After this children can then progress into blending Phonemes together to form short words and to form Digraphs and Trigraphs by combining two to three letters to create sounds. After this children can then progress into creating CVC words and engaging in decodable books to further their skills.
It is common for phonics to be taught systematically in the classroom. This starts with learning the letter names, followed by the sound of each letter (Phonemes).
