  • Learning to Read (Children)
    • English has 44 Phonemes and 26 letters
      • Certain letters have to be combined to produce some sounds
    • Marsha Bell points out that it is hard for a children to learn to read because many words have similar sounds but are spelt differently
    • Phonics VS Whole word
      • Phonics is a sound based system where children learn to break down words into smaller units and then blend them together.
      • Whole word is when the child is taught to recognize the whole word rather than the individual units
