Approaches to Reading

- Look and Say Approach = encourages reader to find familiar words as a whole in order to read them

- Phonic Approach = encourages reader to break down the wod into graphemes and sound them out to read the whole word accurately. 

Types of Phonics:

- Synthetic phonics = teaches children the individual phonemes separetely from reading, then they can blend these togetherto pronounce a word

- Analytic phonics = Encourages the breaking down of words into key sections without being taught the individual phonemes.
