Phonics and Whole Language Learning: A Balanced Approach to Beginning Reading


Subject:
Education , Reading Promotion & Literacy , Early Childhood

Description:
This article discusses methods that adults can use to help young children learn to read, given that "the question in early childhood programs is not whether to teach 'phonics' or 'whole language learning,' but how to teach phonics in context ... so that children make connections between letters, sounds, and meaning." Includes activities to do with infants, toddlers, and pre-school and school-age children. From the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
