This is so interesting – I couldn’t pass it and not post. We spend so much time teaching some of the skills of reading, very often to the detriment of other crucial skills.Why can I read the following extract? Because I have the vocabulary and the syntax; I can use contextual clues; I can scan; I also have phonic skills but am only using the very basic to decipher this article!!!! – First and last letters!!!!
It certainly is weird!!!!
