Abstract

This action research was conducted to find out whether using the onset-rime approach would improve the students’ blending skill and increase their participation in the English class. Data were collected in 5 weeks using four types of instruments namely questionnaire, interview, observation, pre-test and post-test, allowing for triangulation of results. The findings revealed that the students who gained low marks in the pre-test were able to do well in the post-test, hence proving that onset-rime approach is one of the potentially viable approaches to be used in teaching phonics. The results also conveyed positive increase of students’ participation in class. This research concludes that the use of onset-rime approach helps to increase reading ability among the students as they can phonically decode words when the method is integrated in teaching them enunciating and reading new words correctly.
