Letter Sounds in Phonics Can be Taught to Preschoolers as Early as 3 Years of Age or Even Earlier
Letter Sounds in Phonics helps children understand the relationship between the spoken and written words. Many parents believe that child will learn to read when he will enrol in the school. However, the truth is many children lag behind their literacy age after joining school. There are numerous factors behind it. Parents must educate themselves that language is not similar to maths or other subjects taught in school. Language learning is closely related to the functions of the brain that are in highly optimised state in early years after birth. Learning to read letter sounds and words is much easier when preschoolers are given opportunity to practice language in a playful and natural manner by parents and caregivers. You are your child’s best teacher in the early years!
