In term 2, I have started phonics with Faith again. This time with the help of these resources - Phonic Adventure #1 and #2. We've done simple activities to learn about basic phonics while she was 3 years old. Now that Faith is 4, she can have a deeper understanding of phonics - learning about consonant sounds, rhyming words and short vowels sounds.
Suitable for age 3 and above
Phonic Adventures is packed with fun phonetic worksheets, activities, and songs for kids of all learning styles be they visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learners. Suitable for classroom, at home learning, or even as a supplement for other phonics instruction programs.
This book focuses on:
- Beginning Consonant Sounds
- Rhyming Words
- Short Vowel Sounds
What I like about Phonic Adventure Book #1
1. The book is filled with many different types of activities.
Hence, the child learns phonics and at the same time learns other skills such as tracing, colouring, matching and circling.
|Tracing the alphabet.|
|Drawing lines to match.|
Here are some example activities.
3. The child is excited and happy doing the activities.
For a preschooler, the love for learning and having fun while learning is important. My 4 year old kept saying " Let's do another page, let's do another page" indicates that she is having fun.
Another way to use flashcards.
|These flashcards are not from Phonic Adventure.|
5. Catchy songs to help the child to remember.
As we know from Gardner's Multiple Intelligence that different children have different learning styles, this series of Phonic Adventure includes an audio disc which helps children to learn through song and music.
