I came across this article today, “How Does Reading Work,” which explains, in easy-to-understand language, how the whole process of learning to read takes place, although admittedly it is quite complex.
It breaks reading down into five processes, all of which must be mastered in order to attain proficiency:
1. Phonemic Awareness
2. The Alphabetic Principle and Phonics
I hope you find the article beneficial, as I have, especially in monitoring your child’s reading progress.
Wishing you a lovely and fun-filled day!
