Phonics plays an important role in the language development in children because children learn language initially through its sound and try to understand the message behind the sound. It is important for parents to understand that from the age of 2 , the child begins to get interested in things like rhyming words, alliterations and word play. This is called Phonological Awareness. Their ability to differentiate between vowels from consonants gradually increases and continues to develop till much later in life. It is no wonder that this is the right age for parents to increase the exposure of children to various activities such as singing songs, reciting poems, music, rhymes, storytelling, shlokas, etc. The child has now the ability to appreciate rhyming words and wordplay as well as the ability to learn new words very quickly. He/she enjoys such sessions immensely. The goal of phonics is to enable children to decode written words by sounding them out, or, in phonics terms, blending the sound-spelling patterns.
