In order for children to learn how to read, it’s essential that they have a solid understanding of the organization and basic features of print.
To become competent readers, children need to be able to isolate individual sounds, called phonemes, and blend them together in order to decode and produce words.
To become fluent readers, children need to be able to read high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, you, my is do, does, she), without having to stop and try to sound them out.
