Both of my kids love to read, but teaching them wasn't the easiest thing to do. When I was growing up we learned how to read phonetically, which is basically sounding out the words. Now the schools focus more on sight words, which is a great way to teach them too. My oldest has a language processing disorder (dyslexia) and teaching her to read phonetically caused years of issues with her ability to write things out. Because she relied on phonetics so strongly she would also spell phonetically. With that in mind, I am a strong proponent of teaching sight words in conjunction with phonetics.
