A program for Reading and Phonics
iPhonix is a program that teaches letter-sound relationships by providing child-friendly content that explicitly focuses on each letter of the alphabet. This explicit instruction is most effective in kids between 4 years to 12 years, when it is combined with exercises in phonemic awareness. When learning to read, kids who understand the basic sounds of the language can apply letter-sound relations with greater ease.
Benefits of the Program
Framework based Learning - Learning sounds of alphabets without any predefined methodology may not be effective as there are no methods for remembering and practicing sounds in daily life. Hence there is a felt need for an effective learning framework for teaching sounds. This programme is designed based on an effective, systematic phonics approach, in conjunction with phonemic awareness. Practice is perfect for young kids to learn sounds and remember them forever.
Fun Learning - If reading is developed between the ages of 4-6 years, it results into a skill, which enables the child to enjoy reading in the correct manner. Learning sounds may be boring in a conventional way, hence distracters have been introduced to make learning fun and improve Speaking Skills. Children can read words, even if they have not seen them before. Further, using sound, they are able to speak in the correct manner, enabling them to gain strong communication and spelling skills and eventually, command over the language.
Build Self-confidence & increasing Exposure - Phonics helps the child establish a solid foundation and a strong command over the language. This will help child acquire a smart personality with high self-esteem and self-confidence. Reading acquired during this stage also initiates the building of a child's sub-conscious mind and thus the ability to grasp and accumulate knowledge much faster.
