Our English Phonics class for students ages 3.5-5 is a fun and interactive program designed to introduce young learners to the foundational elements of English phonics. Through engaging activities, games, and storytelling, children will develop essential pre-reading skills, phonemic awareness, and letter-sound correspondence. The class provides a nurturing environment where children can explore the sounds of the English language and begin their journey towards becoming confident and skilled readers.

Letter Recognition: Children will be introduced to the letters of the alphabet, learning to recognize both uppercase and lowercase letters. They will understand the names and sounds associated with each letter.
Letter-Sound Correspondence: Students will learn the connection between letters and the sounds they represent. They will practice associating specific sounds with corresponding letters.
Sight Words: Basic sight words will be introduced to build students' reading vocabulary and enhance their reading fluency.
Phonics Rules and Patterns: Simple phonics rules and patterns will be introduced, allowing students to apply their knowledge to read and spell words with common letter combinations.
