blending and segmenting skills
March 06, 2024

Hello there,

As educators, we hold the key to unlocking our students' literary futures.

Yet how do we ensure every child is able to decode with confidence in early years instruction?

The answer lies in students being taught to master blending and segmenting skills from the beginning.

Research from the National Reading Panel highlights the importance of systematic phonics instruction, including blending and segmenting, in early literacy development (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, 2000).
