Phono-Graphix 

What is it, how does it work, and why should you try it

Why does Phono-Graphix work? 

Because it takes into account the nature of the learner; 

The nature of the learning child is that he/she: 

   has concrete logic

Children are very literal. They don't think in rules or generalizations. To them a 'long u' looks like this and a 'short u' looks like this, and they will really be confused when the u sounds in super and put don't fit either rule.

   seeks identification

Often a child's favorite question is "What's that?". So when they're struggling to read b oa t why not just tell them what they need to know? "This is 'oe'. Say 'oe' here."

    seeks order and meaning

Another favorite question is "Why?". "Why does this  make a 't' sound?" Because we all agreed to say 't' when we see it! Any other reason is an artificial invention, and is confusing to the child.

   learns best in context

Context is the the circumstances in which a particular event occurs. So we don’t teach the code in key words, or to represent initial sounds in words, but in the context for which it was intended - to read and spell whole words.
