should my first grader still be sounding out words?
My child keeps bringing home papers with notes from the teacher, in red, stating that she is sounding out words. These are not "popcorn or sight" words but new words that are going to be in their reader that week. I'm sure this is going to be the first thing she tells me about my child at the parent/teacher meeting in Oct. I need to know if my child should be sounding words out in first grade? Thanks
