Mammas (and Daddies), Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Learn Sight-Words

BACK-TO-SCHOOL ALERT

Beware. Sight-words are the nation’s most common intellectual virus. They infect every aspect of our school system. 

Everyone who takes 10 minutes to understand what the Reading Wars are really about will oppose sight-words. Conversely, these people will promote phonics, which is the natural way to teach and learn a phonetic language.

 This short article on LinkedIn explains everything: Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Learn Sight-Words

 How can I make this discussion even simpler? How about: kill a sight-word, save a kid.

 Meanwhile, the Education Establishment is Machiavellian, Luciferian, and Stalinesque in perpetuating this fraud. Do you believe that’s an extreme statement? Are you willing to risk a kid’s future on that belief?

Basically, all I'm saying is what Rudolf Flesch said in 1955. Phonics is how the Greeks, Romans and Jews learned their languages, thousands of years ago. Nothing changes. Phonetic languages must be learned in this sequence: the letters of the alphabet, the sounds represented by the letters, and how those sounds blend to form new sounds. That's it. Most children can learn to read in 4-5 months.
