Children who read well, learn well

Many studies have shown that children who cannot read find it hard to study well and, as a result, do not perform well during exams.  But have we been teaching them wrong?  There is a tendency amongst teachers to teach children sight words and word shapes.  What is wrong with this?  Children “learn” these words by memorising them and, in actual fact, don’t learn to read the words correctly.

So what is a better way?  If you teach children to learn letter sounds and blend the sounds to form words, you will have them reading in no time.  And not from memorising words but actually knowing the different letter sounds and how to blend them together correctly to form words.  This way, your child could read any book you put before them.
