Reading Progression

Here is some information about the different stages of reading. For example, children begin reading by tracking words with their finger and sound out/blend words. They move on to recognising more words by sight without needing to sound out/blend and their fluency improves. Later in reading, expression develops and children get a better understanding of the story.
