What is the main focus of Phase 1 in letters and sounds?
Phase One of Letters and Sounds concentrates on developing children’s speaking and listening skills and lays the foundations for the phonic work which starts in Phase 2. The emphasis during Phase 1 is to get children attuned to the sounds around them and ready to begin developing oral blending and segmenting skills.
What are the Phase 1 phonic sounds?
- Environmental sounds.
- Instrumental sounds.
- Body percussion (e.g. clapping and stamping)
- Rhythm and rhyme.

How do you assess letter sounds?
Write the student’s response for errors. Mark the sound the student said between slashes (e.g.,/m/). If the student tells you the letter name instead of the letter sounds, say: “That’s the letter name. What is the letter sounds?” If the student responds with the correct answer, mark a check.
