Often times we put the emphasis on the process rather than the result. Many of us only remember learning to sound words out when we were young. This research proves that is not how we truly learn to read. Sounding words out is ONE strategy of many. It actually can make reading more difficult for children because it isn't how our brain processes information! Our brain reads in chunks and that is the way we want our children to learn.
