Our Signature Reading and Phonics program at Mr. English has been meticulously curated to progressively develop the skills that children need for reading. Key learning outcomes include being able recognize the distinct sound that each letter makes and blending them together to read and learning practical grammar for sentence composition .
Phonics is a system of relationships between letters and sounds. Students with Phonics skills will “understand” why words are pronounced the way they are and will read and spell much easier.
