Reply To: Intro to Science of Reading


The three points I took away from this chapter is that students need both explicit and systematic instruction to become proficient readers, reading is not a natural skill as is walking and talking, and everyone learns to read in the same way.

My question is how do we teach students to read sight words when the word is not spelled as it is supposed to sound? For example the word pretty,phonologically it should be spelled pritty.
