Are you struggling to teach your child how to read? Do you feel the child can read by themselves as they grow? Do you compare your child with the other kids of same age who can read independently?
Let’s find something that can help you come out of all these confusions. Let’s know what is reading. It is a process that involves skills. Reading isn’t a natural process like speaking, rather it requires instructions and practice. The process of reading needs decoding, which is like building a relation between the pattern letters and the letter sounds. Pronunciation is the most important part of reading, as it is how words are said. The phonics awareness enhances the pronunciation thus make the reading correct.
Phonics sound chart: A major help in the process of reading
What is a sound chart?
It is a useful tool or a printable format that consist of the phonics sounds that help child recognise the 46 different phenomes. A great way for children to learn and recognise the alphabets. Once the child identifies the sounds then comes the process of blending and making them read words. A visual aid is always helpful in the process of learning. Basic letter sounds and combination sounds are sometimes difficult for kids to remember. Theses sound charts can help the kids identify them easily. We can have different sound charts and make kids remember the concepts.

Consonant combination (Blends)
Blends are the combination of letter like bl, cl, dr, fl etc. they can help child read the words with correct pronunciation.
Digraph too has the combination of letters, here the letters come together to make a new sound. Like the letter p and h comes together ‘ph’ to make the sound similar to the sound of letter ‘f’.
Vowels can make more than one sounds, when vowel is alone it usually makes the short sounds. When vowel comes in combinations or when vowel is with a friend (easy to explain to the kids), then it makes a long sound just like its name.
R controlled vowels
When vowels come with R or we call it a bossy ‘R’, it takes the control and changes the way the vowel makes the sounds.
Difficult sounds or other combination sounds.

Q1. Why should we teach to read with phonics?
Written language is connected to spoken language. Once we make the kids understand that the letters are the written script and they make a sound. It can help the kids to read by decoding.
Q2. Knowledge of sounds are enough?
Once we make the child learn about sounds then we make them learn blending and segmenting. Blending is bringing sounds together to read on the contrary, segmenting means to isolate sounds in a word.
Q3. What is the different aid that can help kids learn phonics?
A proper approach to phonics is much needed, a well-planned curriculum and a regular session can help child learn phonics and reading. Also, these phonics sound charts can help kids practise in a fun way.
