As there is a specific way to teach letters and sounds, I would suggest not implementing phonics at home. Instead, you could listen to ‘Jolly Songs’ to help. There are also, many children’s nursery rhyme songs that can be listened to. Stories and sound books enrich communication, language and listening skills whilst providing children time to relax and enhance their imagination.
