ABSTRACT
This article outlines a variety of activities that may be used to teach phonics to learners with difficulties. Teaching and learning phonics is an important part of a balanced literacy program for all learners and particularly for those with learning difficulties. In establishing a literacy program, teachers must first gain a thorough knowledge of the abilities, needs, and interests of their learners and then use this knowledge in program planning to ensure that learners will be motivated to learn. Implementing multifaceted approaches and activities that are relevant and meaningful to the learners help heighten and maintain their motivation to participate, persist, and learn. Beginning with concrete or real-world materials based on learners' interests is a great way to spark motivation. By using their knowledge, familiarity and expertise with concrete materials or real-world experiences, links can be established between existing and new knowledge as it is extended and generalized to phonics and other areas of literacy.
