Part 4: Identifying the sounds in words

Supplementary work and conclusion

Most children will learn to hear the sounds in words during class lessons. The few who are finding it difficult may need to be taught in the same manner, but in a small group, or if possible, individually

The aim is to teach the children to hear the sounds in regular words and to write the letters that relate to the sounds. A different technique is needed for coping with english words that are irregular. This is covered next, in Chapter 5, Tricky Words.
