Does anyone have any views on the widespread use of phonics to teach children to read, and do you think that some children benefit more from the 'Look and Say' method. Is it better for some foundation years pupils to learn the 100 basic words first, using flashcards, then proceed to phonics after these words are mastered?
The system of reading at the moment in primary schools seems to rely totally on phonics and I do not think it suits every child and I wonder if there should be more flexibility.
What is the best way to teach a seemingly very bright child who is struggling how to read?
I would welcome some opinions on this.
