Homeschooling mamas must see these words “Phase 3 phonics”, “Phase 2 phonics” floating around on websites giving away or selling their phonics resources. These phases come from the Letters and Sounds Resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It has a lot of strengths in building up listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in your child’s early education. The phases help in break down what needs to be taught when. More information and details on each phase breakdown can be found here.
