English phonics for kids! Learning the English alphabet and letter sounds are essential first steps in learning how to read. The phonics lessons on this free website support the ELL as he or she learns letter sounds and begins reading English. The beginner level focuses on English vowel sounds, both short and long vowels, plus the Dolch sight words. It also includes lessons on consonant blends and digraphs, hard "c" and soft "c", and hard "g" and soft "g." Students can choose an English topic to practice reading words with a specific letter or letter group from the English alphabet.
