Phonics is the ability to recognize there is a connection between the letters that comprise written words and sounds that comprise spoken words. The related skill of phonemics is the ability to manipulate sounds to pronounce written words. Mastery of phonics is important for translating spoken words into writing, expressing ideas in writing, and understanding a written passage. Decoding is the ability to use visual cues to make meaning from words and sentences. Children must become proficient in translating sounds to written words and the reverse in order to understand reading and writing. Sound-to-word matching is only one part of phonics. Students also need to understand syllables, vowels, consonants, and blending sounds. Readers need to learn how to take cues from how a sentence is structured, syntactic cues, and how words fit into sentences, semantic cues. Those cues are essential for making sense of a written sentence.
