Phonics Reading is an important tool in teaching reading. It builds up the foundation of reading skill. A series of books, “Phonics Reading 1, 2, 3” are introduced to the parents to help children read and practice at home.
Students learn about the structure of simple sentences and learn to write after they have built up their reading skill. Through reading stories and answering questions, students improve their reading comprehension skills. Technical skills such as punctuation, spelling and capitalization are also solidified. Students develop their ability to recognize a sequence of thoughts in writing.

Phonics Reading 1
Learning vowel sounds starting with three letter words
Phonics Reading 1 is the first book in the series. This book is a tool that helps children in reading. It introduced the name and the sound of the letters. Phonics Reading 1 is the first stage of reading and it focused at Three Letter Phonetic words with short vowels. Once the child has learnt to sound out the letters and blend them together, he can read the longest words immediately because each letter is clearly pronounced.
Phonics Reading 2
Phonics Reading 2 is the second book in the series, learning longer phonetic words. Once the child has learnt to sound out the letters and blend them together he can read the longest words immediately because each letter is clearly pronounced. In this stage the child is first given clear, unequivocal-sound short words and learned to master the longer words gradually. Not all the simplest words in English are "phonetic", some sight words such as "the", "I", "he', "she", "are", "were" are introduced in this stage to develop reading comprehension.
Phonics Reading 3
Phonics Reading 3 is the third book in the series, learning words with Consonant Blends, Irregular Vowel family, One-vowel and Two-vowel Words. The reading skill of a child can be improved when a child is thoroughly confident in his "phonetic" reading and has had plenty of practice. The fluency and the vocabulary in reading are emphasized in this stage.
