Learning phonics goes hand in hand with learning how to read. For your child to be able to understand how to pronounce words, you must assist them in learning the different phonetic sounds. The long «i:» and the short «i» are some of the phonics sounds your child will learn. Help the boy in the picture worksheet find his kite by tracing through the words with the long «i:» sound. Using a pencil, assist your child to trace through the words to complete the worksheet exercise.
