How Reading is Taught

Reading can be taught in a combination of ways:

  • The Look and Say method (sometimes known as the Whole Word or Sight method) where a child learns to recognise a word by sight through looking at it a number of times.
  • The Whole Sentence method is similar to Look and Say except a child memorises a whole sentence which usually has an accompanying picture.
  • The Phonic method uses the sounds of letters or letter groups. By learning the sounds a child has a strategy for de-coding a word which can be ‘sounded out’.
