My six year old grandson sounds out words, His kindergarten teachers emphasis is on sight words. She says that when she tested him he doesn't know sight words needed for first grade, yet he can spell the words.
When his mom was going into first grade I worked on phonics with her. Like my grandson's class, kids who knew sight words were considered smart. Later around third grade my daughter was ahead of the so called smart kids, because she was able to sound out words rather than try to remember all the words in the English language.
She is a College graduate with a double masters. The so called sight word smart kids barely made it out of high school. Go Phonics!!!!
