Offers reading and writing activities through the use of personal experience and oral language
An approach that supports children's concept development and vocabulary growth
Reading aloud with children provides benefits for adults too. The quality time spent together promotes bonding and strengthens relationships, making it easier for children to develop their social, communication and interpersonal skills.
Helps to explore emotions.
Reading a story aloud that explores particular emotions helps some children to accept their own feelings and understand how others feel. By reading aloud together, stories can help children feel more comfortable discussing their emotions with others.
. Children generally enjoy being read to, which encourages them to see and experience reading as something fun and positive. Reading aloud makes them more likely to become interested in learning to read, which is likely to then spark a lifelong love of reading.
Develops stronger vocabulary
. Children acquire language primarily through listening. Reading aloud lets children regularly hear new words in new contexts, which builds their vocabulary and helps them develop a stronger awareness of the communicative possibilities of language.

Refers to words that keeps reappearing on almost any page of text. “Who, the, he, were, does, their, me, be” are a few examples
k , c
k & t

Studying sounds within the context of the whole word
/k/ /a/ /t/ = cat
(saying the word sound by sound)

Children are taught to blend the sounds phonetically to form words, and then to naturally build vocabulary, and increase fluency and comprehension
Phonics is a method of teaching reading in which you teach students the letters of the alphabet and their sounds first
