Phonics

As a Reading Specialist, one of the most important aspects of reading and understanding is to increase knowledge in all five areas of learning to read. Those five areas are Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension. With all of these items in place, students can chunk and break words into pieces to sound them out. Also, the ability to manipulate sounds and construct new words will help as a student becomes more fluent.
