Reading is many skills woven together.
When all of the skills work together as a system, then Comprehension grows.
If phonics were everything, then this would be something:
I bifor glantsiz whair tu poot that,
mezhering ufecshunit iz.
If real words and correct grammar were enough, then this would be enough:
Before I glance where to put that,
measuring is affectionate.
We still need meaning.
Once you learn how to do it,
reading is enjoyable.
Now we are making sense--now we are really reading.
