That's confusing

Clip to ScrapBook #7

By nature, sight words are spelled, not sounded out. Sounding them out is confusing when most sight words break multiple phonics rules. Thus, there are 2 types of words for first-graders: phonetic and nonphonetic (sight words).

They should be spelled, memorized, recited, snapped, and drilled. Never heard of sounding these out.
