Spotlite Education, an educational programme, offers extra-mural activities that teach children how to read, write and speak English through a programme called Adventure Phonics.
Segomotso Moeng, managing director at Spotlite Education said, “We offer programmes that teach pupils how to read English in a short space of time. The programmes use phonics, a method of teaching people to read by correlating sounds with symbols in an alphabetic writing system.”
The programmes include Adventure Phonics games and master English Games consisting of interactive card and board games, and chart books. “The report of National Reading Panel [a United States initiative which assesses different methods of teaching children how to read] indicates that teaching children phonics will help them in many ways in life,” added Moeng.
“When a child is taught phonics, the child will be able to recognise sounds in words and will be able to spell them correctly. The child will not only read accurately but also quickly.”
Spotlite Education also works with under-resourced schools that are in need of funding and sources funding for the schools through its corporate social investment programme. All products are produced by the Brain Food Company, which is endorsed by South African Qualifications Authority and Department of Education.
