Phonemic touch helps little ones to connect letters and sounds….!!
With an objective to expose and enable the young learners to recognize sounds in words, KG and Primary Wing of SIS conducted the activity ‘Go Phonics’ on 19th May, 2016. It enabled them to open up a new window of discovery enhancing reading skills.
Children were engaged in activities based on the concept of rhymes and beginning sounds. Students actively participated in games and activities that reinforced the concept of phonemic identification, phonemic isolation, word segmenting and blending.
Children learnt to combine their knowledge of print and sounds with their knowledge of language to read with meaning and enjoyment. It provides them an opportunity to explore a whole world of fun and exciting things.
The activity helped to boost the reading standards by developing listening, pronunciation, speaking and reading skills which in turn would help in literacy acquisition.
The sole aim was to sharpen the phonic skills and to develop and build on the reading skills. The prime focus was to help the beginners to understand how the letters are linked to sounds and to enable the children to form letter-sound correspondences and spelling patterns and to help them learn how to apply this knowledge in their reading.
Activities like songs, art activities, puzzles, games, and other hands-on activities were organized to make learning fun and playful, and lots of repetition were conducted as a part of this day celebration. Usage of Tabs & I pad made the class rooms vibrant, dynamic and interesting. They enjoyed the day.
