Description : Abstract: The present study focused on teaching alphabet, reading and writing for kids as a second language. Although teaching for kids has been taken into account with different methods, there has been little research about phonics method. Another point of interest in the study was experience of training of the kids with a new method called phonics method. Typically, teachers need to learn how to facilitate the process of teaching alphabet, reading and writing for young children. Thus, it is felt that the method of teaching may influence the degree of second and foreign language learning. The study is an endeavor to investigate the effectiveness of either one of the phonics vs. traditional approaches in teaching of alphabet, reading and writing for kids between 3-6 years old who were learning English as a second language. To embark on this study, a group of 60 kids were entered as the subjects. Based on the results of the Sue Lloyd's interview, 40 kids who were in the same knowledge level were selected. Then, the subjects were randomly divided into two experimental and control groups. The experimental group was taught via Phonics method and the control group was taught based on traditional method. The kids were taught for eight terms. The course comprised skills of teaching alphabet, reading and writing. The analysis of the results following administration of a standardized test and the obtained scores showed a significant difference between the achievement of the students in two groups. The results implied that the phonics method can be more effective in teaching English for kids.
