On Friday, 14th of September 2018, Toddlers learned about letter C and objects that begin with C were caterpillar, car and cup. The teachers were not only introduced them with the name but also with the sound of the letter. So that the students know that each letter has sound and that was called as phonics.
What is phonics?
Phonics is simply the system of relationships between letters and sounds in a language. When your kindergartener learns that the letter B has the sound of /b/ and your second-grader learns that “tion” sounds like /shun/, they are learning phonics.
Why is phonics important?
Learning phonics will help your children learn to read and spell. Written language can be compared to a code, so knowing the sounds of letters and letter combinations will help your child decode words as he reads. Knowing phonics will also help your child know which letters to use as he writes words.
As the activity the students made crumpled paper caterpillar. This activity is the integration between language and art lesson so that the students can develop their language skills and fine motor skills at the same time.
