The complex reading process

Access & Retrieve Information

Did you know… There are 26 letters in the English language and a possible 44 sound combinations.  

Learning to read is a very complex process. There are many elements and demands that a beginning reader must learn to negotiate including understanding our complicated English language.  A beginning reader is working very hard to access and retrieve information that they already know in order to apply this to new understandings to be able to “crack the code” (reading print) and make meaning from the scribble, symbols (print) and visual images (pictures) on a page.
