E001 2-Day Master Class on Teaching How to Read through Phonics
Workshop - 2 Days
28 & 29 September 2017 YANGON
Thu & Fri
Trainer: Dorothy Lee
Reading is a complex "cognitive process". It is a means of language acquisition, communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Reading development requires the understanding of letter sounds and patterns.
Phonics teaches the associations between letters and sounds. Phonics helps children to recognize and associate sounds of the letters in the alphabet. It is a systematic approach to learning how to read and write through letter-sound relationships. Through knowledge of Phonics, children are able to read through recognizing and associating sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the word they read. This will help them improve their reading skills and reading efficiency. Indeed, Phonics helps children to become confident readers.
