Kim Burnim: Of course. The letter c, for example, sometimes stands for the same sound as the letter k, as in the word “cat,” and sometimes stands for the same sound as the letter s, as in the word “city.” The most common sound for the letter c is the “k” sound, so that’s what we teach children first. Another example is the letter a—sometimes it represents the short a sound, as in the word “cap,” and sometimes it represents the long a sound, as in the word cape. We usually teach the short a sound first, because that’s more common, and then teach the long a sound later on.


... Some studies incorporate phonics reading technique in their application. Created in Malay language, Ahmad, et al. [19] developed " Bijak Membaca " , an application for dyslexic children which applies Phonic Reading Technique and multisensory approach with interactive multimedia, such as text, graphics, video, and animation. Evaluated using Heuristic approach, this application is considered success in integrating all of learning strategies mentioned before. ...
Kajian selanjutnya dalam latihan fonik perlu memperbaiki cara laporan prosedur pengagihan peserta kepada kumpulan dan bagaimana pengkaji memastikan peserta tidak tahu bahawa mereka dalam kumpulan ‘eksperimen’ atau kumpulan ‘kawalan.‘ Kajian juga perlu melaporkan dengan jelas tentang bagaimana pengkaji memastikan mereka yang mengukur kemajuan membaca kanak‐kanak tidak tahu samada mereka dalam kumpulan latihan fonik atau tidak.
Sight words and high frequency words are associated with the whole language approach which usually uses embedded phonics. According to Put Reading First from the National Institute for Literacy,[11] embedded phonics is described as indirect instruction where "Children are taught letter-sound relationships during the reading of connected text. (Since children encounter different letter-sound relationships as they read, this approach is not systematic or explicit.)".

Phonic artinya bunyi. Setiap huruf (alfabet) memiliki bunyi masing-masing. Ibaratnya seperti ini, huruf alfabet adalah kucing, dan kucing itu punya bunyi “meong”, tidak lantas bunyinya “kucing” kan?. Cara mudah mengajari phonic kepada anak bisa dengan memperkenalkan huruf beserta bunyinya masing-masing. Contohnya huruf a bunyinya ae, huruf o bunyinya o, huruf i bunyinya i. Pada dasarnya mirip seperti belajar membaca dalam Bahasa Indonesia. Yang berbeda hanya pada huruf “c” yang dalam bahasa inggris bunyinya “keh”.
The use of phonics in American education dates at least to the work of Favell Lee Mortimer, whose works using phonics includes the early flashcard set Reading Disentangled (1834)[19] and text Reading Without Tears (1857). Despite the work of 19th-century proponents such as Rebecca Smith Pollard, some American educators, prominently Horace Mann, argued that phonics should not be taught at all. This led to the commonly used "look-say" approach ensconced in the Dick and Jane readers popular in the mid-20th century. Beginning in the 1950s, however, inspired by a landmark study by Dr. Harry E. Houtz, and spurred by Rudolf Flesch's criticism of the absence of phonics instruction (particularly in his popular book, Why Johnny Can't Read) phonics resurfaced as a method of teaching reading.

In 1996 the California Department of Education took an increased interest in using phonics in schools.[26] And in 1997 the department called for grade one teaching in concepts about print, phonemic awareness, decoding and word recognition, and vocabulary and concept development. [27] Then, in 2014 the Department stated "Ensuring that children know how to decode regularly spelled one-syllable words by mid-first grade is crucial". It goes on to say that "Learners need to be phonemically aware (especially able to segment and blend phonemes)".[28] In grades two and three children receive explicit instruction in advanced phonic-analysis and reading multi-syllabic and more complex words.[29]


Siapa yang tidak ingin anaknya jago ngomong Bahasa Inggris? Semua orang tua pasti menginginkannya bukan? Sekaraag ini, Bahasa Inggris sudah menjadi second language bagi anak-anak di kota besar sepertiJjakarta. Mereka terbiasa berbicara dalam bahasa inggris karna disekolah bahasa yang dipakai adalah Bahasa Inggris. Kemampuan berbahasa (verbal) bisa didapat secara natural; yakni melalui mendengar dan praktek langsung. Namun, untuk kemampuan membaca diperlukan latihan dan pengajaran terhadap si anak. Intinya kemampuan membaca itu tidak bisa datang begitu saja.
Tanpa memiliki pengetahuan tentang bagaimana huruf-huruf dalam suatu kata diucapkan, anak-anak akan mengalami kesulitan dalam mengenal dan mengingat kata, sehingga mereka cenderung mendapat masalah besar dalam membaca dan menulis. Dengan menguasai phonics, anak-anak dapat dengan mudah memahami isi wacana, menulis berbagai bentuk tulisan, termasuk membuat puisi dengan kata-kata berima yang tepat.

Manfaat lainnya dari menggunakan metode fonik untuk mengajarkan membaca Bahasa Inggris adalah metode ini mempermudah anak Anda untuk mendengar dan memanipulasi bunyi dalam kata-kata yang diucapkan sehingga anak Anda akan lebih mudah membaca kata-kata Bahasa Inggris. Contohnya, Anda bisa menggantikan bunyi huruf c dari kata ‘cake’ menjadi bunyi huruf t dari kata ‘take’. Kedua kata tersebut memiliki bunyi akhir yang sama. Yang membedakannya adalah bunyi awal.
Later, international evaluations TIMSS and PISA showed a sharp improvement in all areas, namely literacy, from 2011/2012 to 2015, Portuguese students results raised to above OECD and IEA averages, attaining the best results ever for Portugal. A few analysts[65] explain these advances by some of the educational measures then put in place: the development of more demanding curricula, the emphasis on direct teaching, and explicit fluency training in reading and mathematics.
Penelitian menunjukkan bahwa Phonics adalah salah satu cara tercepat bagi anak-anak untuk mempelajari konsep menulis kata dan mengembangkan kemampuan membaca, terutama apabila mereka mulai mempelajarinya di usia muda. Dengan mengajar membaca dan mengeja melalui penerjemahan fonetik dalam pengejaan biasa, menggunakan kemampuan membaca mandiri menjadi sangat lebih mudah bagi anak-anak, dimana hal tersebut dapat mendorong mereka untuk berlatih dan terus belajar di rumah.
To understand the big picture, children must understand the alphabetic principle—how our English system of writing works. The alphabetic principle is simply that visual symbols (letters) represent speech sounds (phonemes). To write the spoken word “dog,” you use alphabetic symbols to represent the speech sounds. We can combine and recombine letter symbols to form words. As odd as it may sound, children can learn letters and even letter sounds in very rote ways without understanding the alphabetic system. When children do not understand the alphabetic principle, they may do the following:
Reading experts generally agree that phonics is one of many important elements of learning to read, along with familiarity with books, oral vocabulary (which is the collection of words that a child understands and can use in conversation), understanding of the parts of stories, and other factors. An approach that addresses all of these skills is often referred to as balanced literacy.
In the reading skills pyramid, a visual illustration of the process kids go through when learning to read, phonics follows closely behind phonemic awareness. Once children understand that letters have associated sounds, they begin to make relationships between those sounds and spelling. This is the skill that helps beginning readers decode — or sound out — new words. The key elements of reading are:
Jika anak-anak sudah mulai bersemangat, kita bisa menyediakan tambahan buku-buku dan lembar kerja yang bagus, menarik tapi murah.

Penerbit ini sangat pintar memasarkan buku-bukunya dengan memasang rak khusus di hampir semua supermarket di Perth! Anak-anak pasti suka dengan buku-buku ini, karena menarik dan menantang untuk dikerjakan.
English has absorbed many words from other languages throughout its history, usually without changing the spelling of those words. As a result, the written form of English includes the spelling patterns of many languages (Old English, Old Norse, Norman French, Classical Latin and Greek, as well as numerous modern languages) superimposed upon one another.[7] These overlapping spelling patterns mean that in many cases the same sound can be spelled differently and the same spelling can represent different sounds. However, the spelling patterns usually follow certain conventions.[8] In addition, the Great Vowel Shift, a historical linguistic process in which the quality of many vowels in English changed while the spelling remained as it was, greatly diminished the transparency of English spelling in relation to pronunciation.
