Levels

PhonicsMonsters.com has been carefully structured into four specific levels to assist the learner’s voyage into reading literacy. Each level is systematic in its approach to teaching your child about the different sounds in the English language. Students are introduced to each new sound with a short animation that engages their interest and instructs them about how to sound out the word and pronounce it correctly. Alongside this, children are introduced to ‘tricky words’. These are common words that don’t follow the normal phonics rules (e.g the, said, was, they).

Printables

Each level consists of these printables:

– Student Book

Stages of development

Overview

Level 1 - Early Emergent Readers
Level 2 - Emergent Readers
Level 3 - Transitional Readers
Level 4 - Early Fluent Readers

Early Emergent Readers

3 – 4 years old*

– Sound/symbol relationships
– Writing conventions
– Pictures analysis
– Sound-letter recognition
– Phonologically aware

Level 1 is designed to introduce the learner to phonics and give them good phonemic awareness, an essential pre-reading skillset. The letter sounds are taught in alphabetical order

Emergent Readers

4 – 5 years old*

– Speed in reading (Decoding)
– Spelling ability(Encoding)
– Word recognition
– Sight words
– Word groups and rhyming

In level 2 the student starts to learn how to blend and decode with three-letter CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. Then extra letter blends are added to creat ccvc, cvcc and ccvcc words.

Transitional Readers

6 – 7 years old*

– Identify more words
– Decode unknown words
– Identify letter patterns
– Beginner comprehension
– multisyllabic words

Level 3 Introduces digraphs. Introducing the learner to the vowel digraphs (e.g. ai, ee, ow, ui) and the consonant digraphs (e.g. sh, ch, th). Stories include basic comprehension.

Early Fluent Readers

7 – 8 years old*

– Towards fluent reading
– Longer text lengths
– Identify letter patterns
– Understand written material
– Independent reading

level 4 familiarizes the learner with diphthongs (eg. ow, oi, air), then harder word suffixes (eg. sure, tion). Longer multisyllabic words are introduced as well as silent letters and syllables. Level 4 also includes more challenging story comprehension.
