Phonics For Reading

Learning to blend phonemes with letters helps children read words. Learning to segment sounds with letters helps them spell words. Relating sounds to letters is the heart of phonics instruction.
we believe that recognizing characters is the beginning of all pursuits while reading is the basis for the learning of all subjects. Only by grasping the effective learning method through focusing and swift recognizing characters, can children achieve the objective of reading as early as possible.

The Most Effective Phonics System In Indonesia

English Next Phonics® is a comprehensive English literacy course for kindergarden kids. This program uses accelerated learning techniques to help children develop accurate Reading, Spelling and Writing skills faster and smarter. It fixes common pronunciation mistakes made by Indonesian students, such as f/v and s/sh sounds.
The English Next reading programme overcomes the difficulties that new readers face when they learn to read and have to combine letters into blended sounds. It overcomes the problem of knowing how to pronounce words when so many letters and clusters of letters can be associated with more than one sound. Commencing with simple, straightforward words, the student progresses to learn more difficult phoneme combinations, building upon his or her successes along the way
Result: Kids can Read, Write & Spell before they enter Primary school!

Why Is English Next The Best Reading Program?

Love For Reading

We also use our Phonics sessions to read out loud to the kids so that they will see that reading is such a joy. Reading out loud helps build pre-reading skills and prepare the students academically and speak with American accent.

Cognitive Development

Our phonics programme helps students make sense of the world around them, develop their cognitive skills, their social skills and their ability to communicate and express themselves verbally. Language skills development includes expression and reception of spoken language and comprehension.

Personalized Attention

Your child’s lessons will be in a small group of no more than SIX children. The teacher will directly address students’ needs as determined by their diagnostic assessments. As everyone has different requirements, teachers tailor the lesson to the individual within the parameters of the programme.

Structured And Powerful

The English Next Phonics Course is structured, cumulative and hierarchical and it links clusters of letters to single sounds in a unique manner.
The course focuses on teaching and reinforcing one new sound each week. The students are taught to identify sounds via the use of a series of English Bridge proprietary diacritical marks or clues.

Holistic Growth

Our Phonics lessons are carefully approached with fun songs, interactive games, focused activities, and delightful books to assist in the learning process. Students will not only learn the step-by-step reading skills, but also develop a lot of vocabulary, practice listening comprehension, enhance critical reading from a young age, boost their confidence, and last but not least, speak with the right pronunciation.

Intellectual Development

Our phonics programme takes advantage of a young child’s curiosity and desire to learn new things. Through visual, auditory and kinesthetic teaching process outlined in our programme, critical aspects of a child’s brain are established including communication skills, intellectual development and crucial early phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge.

Benefits of Learning Phonics

Phonemic Awareness

The spoken English language is made up of words and sentences, and these words are made up of individual sounds. Phonemic awareness is the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds in spoken words.

Ambitious Proficiency Improvement

Phonemic awareness instruction makes a stronger contribution to the improvement of reading and spelling when children are taught to use letters as they manipulate phonemes than when instruction is limited to phonemes alone.

Easy to Grasp

enables the student to see how letters combine to create invariant sounds and empowers the student to take control of his or her own reading progress.

Unique Methodology

Students learn to blend separate sounds into words, segment words into smallest units of sounds, understand that words are made up of sounds represented by symbols or letters, understand the relationship between written and spoken language.

Speak As Soon As Possible

Our materials are designed for students to start speaking as soon as possible. We start from scratch; not with tons of grammar patterns and all kinds of tedious theory, but with skills students can actually use. Students may start speaking English as soon as humanly possible.

Higher-Order Thinking

In the advanced stage, students are able to identify words with greater skill and ease, and read with better comprehension. They need many opportunities to read texts that are predictable, patterned, and interesting in order to read words quickly and without effort. With extensive reading practice, they develop a level of fluency that enables them to read with increasing enjoyment and understanding.
At this level, we work on helping students to move away from blending and segmenting and develop automaticity in their reading. We can then devote even more of our attentions to developing all the other areas of literacy and at the same time fostering a love of reading through read aloud, shared-reading, guided reading, and exposure to interesting cumulative storybooks.

Emergent reading and writing skills are supported authentically in all areas off the classroom. Our ECP teachers understand that children must have many opportunities to interact and play with books and writing materials throughout the classroom each day. Children regularly experience group read alouds, small group storytelling and independent reading time to acquaint children with the structures of reading and the joy of books. Children are invited to write to express themselves. They see their teachers writing, and they are inspired to represent their thoughts on paper. Students in the ECP begin by making marks on paper to represent letters and words. Soon they learn that each letter looks a certain way and they learn to copy and write letters and words. Dictation and storytelling is an important part of early childhood development. Children discover the power of their words as they hear them read back to them.
Speech & Drama (English/Chinese)
This provides a conducive platform for self-expression. Children are guided in developing correct speech and articulation as well as vocal and facial expression through interesting activities involving recitation, characterisation and mime.
The distinctive Letter Land method is the foundation of our teaching philosophy. Learning about alphabet, shapes and sound recognition will result in
accelerated development of reading and spelling.
The phonics-based English program covers basic language and literacy skills that lead eventually to reading and writing. It combines stories, songs, rhymes, language activities, reading, spelling and creative writing. Our materials are designed to prepare children for primary one.
In addition, we also incorporate the Reading Bee programme where a balance approach will be used, acknowledging the importance of both form and function of the literacy processes. It combines humour, creative illustrations and clever storytelling to provide children with enjoyable reading experiences. Together with activities like show-and-tell in the classroom, role play and creative writing, we inculcate in children the love of the language building a strong foundation for successful literacy development
The Kiz Phonics program, unlike Hooked on Phonics, is available entirely online or through mobile applications. Because the program was developed by people who teach English or ESL to young and adult learners, heavy emphasis is placed on the proper progression through fundamentals, like the alphabet, phonics, pronunciation, sentence structure, and reading techniques. Digital letter, word, and pronunciation charts are also available online and can be printed, making this a great instructional tool for a homeschooling environment as well.
Headsprout’s unique, adaptive approach to teaching reading has produced real results for students both in the home and at school. Furthermore, the company’s approach has been validated by peer-reviewed studies, published in many major journals of education, since the software first hit the market over a decade ago. The company’s consistent approach to student learning, and its use of algorithms and lesson adaptation, make it a great fit for independent study times and all levels of early learners.
There is one problem that has almost always stopped homeschoolers and budget-weary parents in their tracks: licensing fees for literacy programs. Many of the most popular literacy programs, even those offered primarily for home use, require steep subscription and licensing fees that can eat into family budgets. This makes it hard to review, or to teach, the most basic literacy and reading comprehension concepts with early learners. Reading Bear was founded to put a stop to this problem. All of its literacy and reading comprehension lessons are completely free for home use, making this tool the best option for parents on a tight budget.
Reading Bear, like many other tools, understands the importance of “leveling” its learning programs and providing numerous instructional options to parents. The free service offers its early childhood reading lessons in both video and slideshow formats. In addition, the service offers seven different levels of instruction for each lesson, ranging from a short “review” of the lesson’s concepts to a longer, fully immersive lesson for young learners who are either new to the concept or need more time to review before moving on. The ability to choose different instructional methods and levels, in addition to its free price tag, makes Reading Bear a top choice for parents who prefer flexibility and have a tight budget for instructional tools.
Jolly Phonics
At this stage, the children will be working towards a thorough foundation for reading and writing. The Jolly Phonics Programme teaches children letter sounds in an enjoyable, multi-sensory way, which helps the children to read and write words. Levels one to three are reviewed and workbooks are introduced when appropriate. The teachers extend the children’s learning through various activities to aid letter recognition and formation, and to help children blend and identify sounds. In the Pre-Kindergarten class, levels one to four of the Jolly Phonics programme will be completed.
Jolly Phonics
This is a comprehensive phonics programme in which a letter is introduced each week through “Jolly Jingle” stories and related activities to reinforce the sound of the letter. The Jolly Phonics programme focuses on the different sounds of each letter and helps to expand the child’s vocabulary. It is a multi-sensory programme that complements White Lodge’s curriculum. Levels one to three of the Jolly Phonics programme are introduced and completed at the nursery stage.
Phonological awareness
Oral language development through Structured Book Reading
“I am so impressed with how engaged the children are during the PreLit group. The program is designed with outstanding teaching techniques and uses repetition of tricky activities to ensure the children “get it” before we move onto the next element. I am amazed at the skill level and sound knowledge the children demonstrate each and every day.”
Through our complete and effective Phonics program, we prepare kids to develop love for reading. Our First Language Program starts with Phonics classes to encourage children to master their alphabet sounds and begin to learn phonetically early in life. We use the most successful and proven method to help students listen to, read, and speak American English properly. We also use our Phonics sessions to read out loud to the kids so that they will see that reading is such a joy. Reading out loud helps build pre-reading skills and prepare the students academically.
He travels all over the world with “Jolly Phonics”, a system for teaching literacy through synthetic phonics, using the 42-letter sounds of the English language rather than the alphabet.
The whole language approach uses thematic texts and stories, and some traditional phonics, to teach children to read and write. The aim is to learn the context of the sentences and stories to help master the nuts and bolts of literacy. Jolly Phonics pulls the words apart into sounds before blending them together into the whole word. The idea is that students will then begin to automatically blend their phonemes.
“With the whole language [approach] there’s a sense that reading and writing are just like speaking – we pick them up naturally, especially if the children have a lovely story book. But the problem there is that reading and writing are actually skills; Jolly Phonics teaches those skills in small stages.
Magic English Inc offers a complete program from an early age to an advanced level. For new students, there will be a placement test. Where students will be put to the level appropriate to the child’s abilities. This level consists of Magic Sounds, Blending Tricks, Reading Wand, Secret Potion, and Wizard. Children or students who have already passed these levels will be awarded certificates and trophies by Magic English Inc.
The English course is also always concerned and monitor the progress of learning English students and provide evaluation of students. Students who have mastered the material at one level will be tested. If passed the test, can immediately go up to the next level. Increase levels by ability per child rather than per class, so children who have mastered the material at one level can rise to the next level without waiting for classmates.
In addition, the course is supported by experienced teachers and a conducive, clean and comfortable classroom atmosphere. Thus, Magic English Inc students can learn in a fun and effective way.
Our Phonics lessons are carefully approached with fun songs, interactive games, focused activities, and delightful books to assist in the learning process. Students will not only learn the step-by-step reading skills, but also develop a lot of vocabulary, practice listening comprehension, enhance critical reading from a young age, boost their confidence, and last but not least, speak with the right pronunciation.
Survey has affirmed that children who took Phonics when they were younger speak with better English pronunciation, near that of a native speaker. They consistently perform better in higher levels in the Integrated English compared to those who didn’t have a chance to start with the Phonics program. Our own experience in teaching more than 1,000 Phonics students for more than a decade has confirmed this fact. So, what are you waiting for? Enroll your preschoolers and kindergarteners to our Phonics classes!
We also introduce phonics to children for their preparation on learning how to read and write. Our main goals are for the children to be able to read and write simple sentences once they graduate from our school. The teaching is designed to the point that English becomes children’s native way of communicating.
Intentional teaching is when educators actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills and knowledge building. Play-based programs also assist children as they make the move to school. It is easy for adults to see what children are doing when they are involved in literacy and numeracy activities such as:
Reading and interacting with books
Writing or drawing
Building and constructing
Exploring art, craft, science or physical activities
At other times, it may be that children’s learning is not as obvious – for example, when children are thinking, talking with others, observing or doing things they have done before. In play-based programs children are learning all the time.
Dispositions to learning
As well as literacy and numeracy skills, children discover a great deal about themselves as friends and as members of communities. Through play-based programs, children learn “dispositions”, or ways of approaching tasks and activities. These guide their learning well beyond their early childhood years. Without positive dispositions, children may learn a wide range of skills and acquire a great deal of knowledge, but may choose not to apply these. Play-based programs promote many positive dispositions, including:
Persistence Revisiting an activity, sticking at it until completion
Curiosity Seeking to understand, to question and explore
Perseverance Sticking to a task or activity even when things do not proceed as expected, or when things go wrong
To enhance their phonics and letters awareness.
To enhance their fine motor skills through tracing and writing activities.
To enhance their gross motor skills.
To enhance their language skills through communication and comprehension.
To enhance the basic math concepts.
To promote their sense of creativity and imagination through songs, music, dramatic play, drawing and making art.
To enhance their confident, self-help skills and independence.
To promote their social awareness and social-emotional skills.
To enhance their Mandarin language through songs, activities and vocabularies.
To introduce them with Bahasa language through songs, vocabularies and activities.
To enhance their five senses through sensory activities.
Language and Literacy:
Students learn to listen for information and enjoyment. Speak to convey meaning and communicate with others. They will use drawing, mark-making, symbols and writing with invented and conventional spelling to communicate ideas and information. Examples: Story time, rhymes and songs, creative writing, phonics development and reading.
Preparation for reading and writing begins through the phonetic introduction of the sandpaper letters. Word building and the introduction of reading exercises take place through a natural progression depending on a child’s personal readiness.
Learning Vision Approach
Literacy Links is a holistic language and literacy curriculum that is made up of a selection of literacy curriculum; Letterland, Readers Workshop, Word Bank and Budding Writers. Language acquisition includes listening comprehension, communication skills, reading, writing, phonics and word recognition skills, vocabulary knowledge, grammar and sentence structure, and the conventions of writing. Children practice and learn language meaningfully and for a purpose, and in a fun and holistic way.
Our Nursery 2 program provides opportunities for children to expand their repository of knowledge, cultivate their strengths and interests, and build rock solid academic foundations. Children embark on a structured 3 year UK phonics program (Rigby Star Phonics) to help them acquire skills to blend and decode words in their early reading adventures. Children complete all the letter sounds in Nursery 2 before progressing to digraphs and trigraphs subsequently. Children also learn more about writing, vocabulary, grammar and comprehension. They further build their Numeracy concepts and number sense through games and activities that build their passion for learning.
2. English Language Arts: Speaking, Reading and Writing
Letterland is adopted to teach phonics and language at all levels. Coupled with other reading and literacy programmes, children are taught to read, write and spell with confidence. ‘Read-aloud’ and ‘Show and Tell’ are planned to nurture love for reading and building confidence in oral expression.
The literacy materials allow young children to read and write at an early age, starting with basic letter sounds and progressing to grammar and non-phonetical reading and writing skills.
The phonetic approach adopted in the classroom offers children a tactile, visual and auditory experience which develops into a strong literacy foundation for the child.
Language Arts
The Language art is composed of 3 main components:
Reading and Comprehension, where children are given selections to read at their level, and asked to describe and answer questions about it.
Grammar and Process Writing, which includes learning proper grammar through lessons and workbook exercises, and putting these to practice in writing pieces such as a personal narrative, descriptive and informative paragraphs, and letters or stories. The process is emphasized, to include brainstorming, drafts, proofreading and publishing.
Spelling and Vocabulary, where the children use a dictionary to learn the meaning and pronunciation of a word, and then use it in sentences, and finally a mastery spelling test at the end of each week.
Language and Communication Competency Skills
( Phonological Awareness Program)
At this stage, your child will start to recite rhymes and finger plays, responds to questions appropriately and learn to express simple ideas and feelings in short and simple sentences. Your child will show interest in writing for specific purposes and start to make representational drawings.
Language Arts
Reading: Books and other language arts materials with emphasis on universal outlook are selected consciously. All core areas of study (social studies, math, science, speech, art and values oriented studies) are correlated through language arts.
Writing: Writing is supported by providing occasions for creative fine motor activities involving the fingers and hands, such as painting, playing, drawing, cutting, working with clay as well as sand.
The phonics-based English program covers basic language and literacy skills that lead eventually to reading and writing. It combines stories, songs, rhymes, language activities, reading, spelling and creative writing. Our materials are designed to prepare children for primary one.
Our reading program introduces children to the frequently used sight words that will also help them to read. There are 8 readers per year from Nursery 2 to K2.
( Phonics Program)
Your child will be introduced to alphabets and their phonological sounds. Through books, music, songs and rhymes, your child will enjoy reading and develop an interest in writing as well.
Language development now plays a more significant role in sessions, as children are encouraged to chat at the start of the sessions and participate in action songs.
