Sounding out words by each letter sound vs. word parts

Do you teach students to sound out words letter by letter or do you teach them to look for word parts.

For example, in the word cap you can say start at c then say the wounds /c/ /a/ /p/ but if the word is cape sounding it by each letter doesn't work.

I'm just curious to know what other teachers here do. When I was teaching and working as a reading specialist, I stayed away from teaching students to sound words letter by letter for the reasons listed above.

Instead, I taught them to look for word parts (using Words Their Way).
