  1. All words are phonetic!! There is no need for sight words if using decodable books. @spelfabet, @susangodsland have info on this!!!

    • I disagree. But further, my blog is for parents of primary school children and their understanding of phonics is developmental. Some words are ‘tricky words’ at one period of their learning but won’t be later on as their knowledge of phonemes develops.
