This study addressed the question of how phonics strategies contribute to letter-sound acquisition knowledge through the use of three different phonics strategies. I emphasized that the use of phonics strategies in support to instruction increased the students' identification knowledge of letters and sounds. Data was collected through using three phonics strategies, letter and sound assessments, interviews, questionnaires, and observations.

Educators should use phonics strategies as a tool to enhance their instruction since the students benefit from the extra support.
