Learning Spoken Words
Spoken words are words in writing that are meant to be read out loud. The collection of spoken words that a child understands is usually called his or her oral vocabulary. The more vocabulary your child knows, the more words he or she will be able to read and understand. You can share oral vocabulary by sharing stories, songs and books. Bible Phonics Plus offers a wide range of vocabulary that helps your child learn new words. The words are accompanied with clear and easy to understand animations to help them remember.
Recognizing Sounds in Words
Before your child reads, he/she needs to be able to recognize the sounds of the letters that make up the alphabet.
Experts call this phonemic awareness. It identifies the separate sounds in spoken words.
In this case it is crucial for children learning to read to develop phonemic awareness. It benefits their reading by improving their ability to read words. It aids reading comprehension primarily through its influence on word reading.
For children to understand what they read, they must be able to read words rapidly and accurately. Rapid and accurate word reading frees children to focus their attention on the meaning of what they read.
Of course, many other things, including the size of children’s vocabulary and their world experiences, contribute to reading comprehension.
Bible Phonics Plus has an ABC Ready to Read workbook that starts with initial letter sounds. Having our readers aware of the first sounds in words is an important precursor to reading. The book continues with ending sounds. Many early readers have trouble finding the last sound in words and this impedes their reading development.
Phonemic awareness development is also supported by Bible Phonics Plus in providing songs and games that have two levels, beginner and advanced, testing the awareness of the different letters and their sounds.
Knowing short and long vowels
Every letter in the alphabet has its own name and sound, some letters represent one sound and other letters represent different sounds, depending on what words they are in.
When your child is able to identify the names of all letters, and the most common sound made by each letter, will lead to rapid learning of phonics.
Phonics is knowing how written letters represent sounds.
Bible Phonics Plus is the appropriate and best learning tool for your child to engage in meaningful learning and develop these skills.

Short and long vowels are very important in learning how to read and spell words. Bible Phonics Plus has the vowel Glue Workbook of this program that teaches short vowel word phonograms.
Vowel sounds really act as the glue to make our letter sounds into words. These five short sounds make such a difference in what words say and mean. This skill is an area that some of our children struggle with.
When children listen to and practice using vowel sounds correctly their spelling, reading, speech and comprehension will improve.
Bible Phonics Plus also have The Long Vowels workbook which allows your child to explore the world of Long Vowel sounds. Vowels are the building blocks of words.

Some tips on helping your young reader become the best reader is reading together with your child. Reading experts identify two different kinds of reading experiences with children: reading aloud and shared reading.
When you are reading aloud to a child, the objective is usually just the pleasure of a good story or of learning about something, as well as possibly increasing the child’s oral vocabulary.
In a shared reading experience, you and the child would generally be looking at the words together as you read, with the child actively involved and (with help as needed) reading some or many of the words.
The objectives of shared reading experiences could include developing the child’s ability to recognize letters and written words.
