Fun fact…Did you know why English can be so challenging for reading and spelling? English is comprised of three languages: Anglo-Saxon, Latin, & Greek. Many of our Anglo-Saxon words (the first words students learn to read) have silent consonants. Over time the pronunciation of Anglo-Saxon words may have changed -but the spelling didn’t. Little wonder learning to read and spell can be challenging for many.
