Comprehension and rtlogotype
If Reading Were Simple

As accomplished readers, we probably don’t know how to read
without incorporating the language-meaning as we go.

But try this simulated experience--you’ll appreciate each element.

If Phonics were everything, then this would be something:

                    I bifor glantsiz whair to poot that,
                   mezhering ufecshunit iz.


If real words and grammar were enough, then this would be enough:

                    Before I glance where to put that,
                    measuring is affectionate.


We still need the whole language tree--we still need meaning.

                    One you learn how to do it,
                    reading is enjoyable.


Now we are making sense. Now we are really reading.

When Phonics and language are woven together,
Comprehension grows.
