Welcome to our page for phonics worksheets! Phonics is a method of teaching letter patterns as they relate to sounds and words. Phonemic awareness is one skill that goes towards an understanding of phonics. However, there are many letter patterns, groups and syllables, which make up an understanding of phonics. Some of these patterns include recognizing written and oral characteristics of consonants and vowels, recognizing digraphs and blend words, recognizing long and short vowels, and even identifying irregular spelling and sound patterns in words.
