SnapWords® is a research-based, carefully designed system that inextricably marries sight word recognition with explicit phonics instruction. SnapWords® are over 640 high frequency words with lessons for each word that include phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics/orthography/automatic word recognition, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. So far, as far as content goes, The SnapWords® System and Science of Reading are identical in every particular… except one.
If your right-brained child is learning the sounds that letters represent, why not jump right in and teach the sounds from within whole sight words? Since they are big-picture thinkers, right-brained learners are most successful when you start at what we'd typically consider to be the end and move toward the beginning.
