In school all children have regular phonics sessions which are based on the Letters and Sounds. Here are a few tips how you can help your child get better at phonics:
Continue with the read-aloud. Include alphabet book and cards. Some alphabet books tell a story or talk about information. Look out for these.
Sing the alphabet often. Be careful that “l-m-n-o” doesn’t come too quickly and sound like one letter. It is a group of characters with four specific sounds; slow down at this part, maybe even pause after the letter n, and then continue with stating the alphabet slowly and clearly.

Point to alphabet characters and say their titles. Mix the characters and say their titles.
Work on titles. Teach your child to spell his or her name. Write the name on a piece of paper. Ask your child to trace over it and then duplicate. Warning: this may become a little tricky with titles that do not follow regular sound-symbol relationships. Point out the irregularities.
Make characters in fun ways with paint, play clay, sticks, sugars, or sand.
Look for characters wherever you decide to go. Examples: indications, cereal boxes, publication covers.
Look at characters, say the letter name, say the letter sound, then say a term that begins recover sound.
Make flash cards. Play letter video games such as Storage or Go Fish with characters or sounds, and when you discover a match say a term that begins recover matched sensible. Play Tic-Tac-Toe using characters other than X and O.
Start with simple words, like bat. Write the word on a piece of paper, point to the first notice, and have for the audio. Continue with each succeeding letter.
Embark on a notice hunt. Write a notice together with a sheet of newspaper, like b. Search for every one of the words of things throughout the house that begin start notice or sound. Sketch pictures or write words. Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds: Phonics Games Flashcards
