http://phonicsinternational.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=603#603 This link leads to my rationale for providing some simple resources which link the letters of the alphabet to the sounds they can represent. Over a period of time I have been thinking about the Early Years professionals because wherever I train, this group of people seem unclear about the expectations of linking letters to sounds - and whether they should continue to do this (many were already using Jolly Phonics for example). Personally, I don't have a set response. We know that children vary so much and we know that we, as a professional group, vary in our opinions - as do the parents of children. I feel, on balance, however, that a good systematic synthetic phonics programme is better left until later but that there is nothing harmful about playing around with linking sounds and letters. I am very interested in people's views and experiences regarding the three to four year olds. I'm not particularly looking for feedback regarding the Teeny Reading Seeds resources per se.
