Reading Eggs: Fast Phonics Research Base

Fast phonics

Decades of psychological science research and comprehensive reviews have revealed a strong consensus around the importance of systematic phonics instruction during the initial stages of learning to read. A systematic phonics program, such as Fast Phonics, provides planned learning experiences that give learners the tools to decode words. Synthetic phonics involves identifying sets of letters and sounds, blending the sounds all the way through the word, and then segmenting sounds to spell each word.
