In Sunny Hill Kindergarten, English is our first language. Many subjects in school are taught in English. Children with reading difficulties when they enter primary school are likely to be disadvantaged. Not only will they be unable to learn rapidly through reading, their self confidence in learning may be affected as well. As such, it is paramount for children to acquire reading skills in the kindergarten years. With this in mind, we currently uses Ednoland phonics modules designed to help children pick up English literacy skills at an early age.

To become skilled readers, children must be able to identify words quickly and accurately. Phonics is a good way to introduce children to the world of reading. It helps children learn the relationship between the letters of written language and the sounds of spoken language, and to use this knowledge to read, spell and write better.

A good phonics programme should enable the children to learn the skills meaningfully. Our phonics module lets children learn words in context. Beside phonetic words, children also learn sight words (many of which are high frequency words) so that they can apply their skills in reading real books. The sense of achievement when children learn to read at a young age will spur them to read even more!
