phonics can read nearly anything,
but they do not always understand what they are reading.
There are new words and sentence patterns they will run into that they

One of the best things you can do to save yourself time is to teach your children how to use a dictionary.
This way they can look up most things. It is also a good idea to ask them to guess what they think the word is and see if they are correct. Also if they ask you about a word tell them to look it up in the dictionary first. This way they get into the habit of using a dictionary.
