Phonics needn’t be a drag. Fonix is Phun provides practical assistance to teachers and home schoolers alike as they introduce initial single sounds to early learners. For novice teachers, it provides a tried and tested format that gives a simple basic structure. For experienced teachers it offers activities to refresh and complement what you already do. And the results of most activities will decorate the classroom as well. The games and songs will increase the class’s repertoire and revise the learning throughout the year.
Repetition is of course important for early learners as they learn what a single sound is called, what it says and looks like, but the fun stuff is what really helps them remember.
Class and group activities such as making and eating j for jelly, making paper f for frogs and racing them, making a dancing dragon for d and many more. Some games and activities further develop fine and gross motor skills, visual and auditory discrimination – essential to learning sounds, reading and writing.
