|What about comprehension skills?|
With Words in Color, bringing meaning to what is decoded plays a central role. After the first few lessons, during which the students discover the conventions of reading/writing (e.g., sounds for graphemes, left-to-right orientation), comprehension and vocabulary building are part of every lesson, applied consistently as more and more phonemes and graphemes are encountered and mastered. We stress bringing the natural rhythms and melody of spoken English to the act of reading and challenge students all the time to demonstrate they comprehend what they read.
