In R-controlled syllables, a vowel is followed by an R. The vowel makes neither a long nor short sound. The sound changes, which many teachers refer to as ‘bossy r’ because of the new sound it makes.
Phonics is essential for children to decode letters into their respective sounds, a skill that makes independent reading more efficient. Phonetic reading is very important in the education of children. Phonetic reading can help children learn new words independently.
The main advantage of phonics is that is it helps increase a child’s fluency in reading. Fluency does not regard speed, it means reading the text accurately with the correct pronunciation. Through practice the speed that a child can read will be built up.
Blending is key when it comes to phonics. It involves combining all the sounds to make the word. The hardest obstacle for teachers is getting the students to understand the technique. Through practice and patient, students will be able to pick it up.
