The phonemic segmentation of the synthetic phonics group improved far more in 16 weeks than either of the other two groups. At the start of their research in Clackmannanshire, the synthetic phonics group got 4.

At the start of their research in Clackmannanshire, the synthetic phonics group got 4. After 16 weeks, the figures in the same order were Accelerating the development of reading, spelling and phonemic awareness.
Chaney showed that by age three, children are highly sensitive to the phoneme level of speech. There is no scientific evidence to back this theory. Many parents teach their pre-schoolers to read using synthetic phonics with no ill effects reported.
PA training without letters is not a necessary prerequisite to learning to read and spell. Phoneme sensitivity is innate as all babies need it in order to acquire spoken language, but they are not consciously aware of this ability.
McGuinness WCCR p The ease with which a child can be taught how to consciously unravel speech in order to hear the individual phonemes appears to be heritable. McGuinness WCCR p This unraveling is necessary because speech consists of co-articulated sounds blended into a rapidly produced sound stream.
Young children who find it difficult to hear the individual phonemes within syllables due to hearing problems Peer. Phoneme awareness occurs as a direct result of the teaching methods found in synthetic phonics programmes; it is the process of learning the letter-sound correspondences, translating the letters into sounds in words and vice-versa, which makes the phonemes explicit.
It seems so reasonable on the surface, a bit of phonics, a bit of look and say, a bit of whole word guessing, who could argue with that?
The long tail of underachievement in England is recognised in international studies. It was there before the NLS. The NLS was supposed to get rid of it. In synthetic phonics schools there is no long tail of underachievement. There is no gender gap.
Boys do not underachieve. Same kids — different teaching methodology. Rose Review p Among other strengths, this is because it teaches children directly what they need to know In the Clackmannanshire study, boys and girls in the synthetic phonics programme read well above expected levels, but the boys were ahead of the girls.
Reading ability is based on two major, essential, interacting but different components: A useful illustration of the necessity for reading of both components and the insufficiency for reading of each component on its own is the story of Milton in his blindness.
Wishing to read ancient Greek texts, but unable to do so because he could no longer see the words, Milton encouraged his daughters to learn to pronounce each alphabetic symbol of the ancient Greek alphabet.Welcome to our Cruise into Kindergarten Online Game!
