READING SKILLS

Question:  My grandchild can’t sound words out.  Isn’t this skill still taught?

Lorraine’s Response:  Yes, it is still taught, but is sometimes using a method called Whole Language.  Research indicates that phonics is an important skill, but that children also need exposure to books as well.  I personally believe phonics provide a strong foundation for reading success and should be taught systematically, building the blocks necessary for a good foundation.  I also believe there are some words that don’t sound out well, so need to be memorized, becoming more of those building blocks.
