This was beneficial. This will help me with the weak readers that I tutor, especially second language learners.
Thank you for remind us of the importance of sounds and the difference of identifying decoding skills with letter sound recognition. It helped me to make the connection to EL students that need to take a course in sounds. I have seen this, but you have also spelled it out for me with the ability to recognize and name the sound they can hear.
Thank you! You presented some great points and ideas!
Most interesting statement: What is the difference between singinh the alphabet and knowing the alphabet?
