LEANING TO READ

Good Reading Skills Require:
  • Understanding of phonemes (the smallest meaningful unit of sound in language)
  • Understanding phonics (the relationships between letters and sounds)
  • Developing fluency (recognizing words and reading sentences quickly and accurately)
  • Knowing enough vocabulary to gain word meaning, and good reading comprehension - the essence and goal of reading itself
5 Basic Components Require:
  • The sound structure of oral language
  • Connections between sounds and spelling
  • Relationships between letters and sounds through phonics
  • Building conceptual knowledge for the students
  • Comprehension strategies for a real understanding of the text
