Phonogram Definition: Phonograms are one letter or a group of letters that make a sound.
Are you teaching phonics and phonograms? Phonograms can be one letter or a group of letters. You can point out phongrams in some of the books you read out loud. Single letter sounds are usually taught first. I like to mix in a few more than one letter phonograms as early as possible. Start with a few at a time. I like to start with ou, ay, and oo. Once a reader knows and is comfortable with letters working together it becomes natural to learn and look for letters working together to make one sound.
