Mr Thorne Does Phonics

Phonics Free printable worksheets © Contributed by Leanne Guenther There are differences in opinion about whether using phonics is useful in teaching children to read. My personal opinion is that everyone learns differently -- try a variety of things with your kids until you find what works for them. My oldest daughter just sort of magically read books -- natural ability and lots of family reading time were the causes I think -- she didn't often sound out words or enjoy playing word games. My younger daughter was very keen on phonics lessons and constantly asked to play rhyming word games and activities. Word families really appealed to her and to this day (grade 6) she enjoys word based "puzzles" like word searches and crosswords (my eldest daughter would rather play soccer *grin*). When approaching word families, I like to learn them in sets that have some commonality (for example, short a sounds or long e sounds). Anyways, here are the Word Family sets as I would suggest combining them.
