It is the process of saying the individual sounds in a word and then reading them together to make a word. Whereas, word part is when a part of a word is introduced e.g. ‘-at words or –it words. In word part method, two different letters are paired and then combined with a third letter (beginning sound) to make a three letter word. For instance “a” and “t” are combined to make “at” then different letters are added to it to make different words e.g. C-at making cat; b-at making bat; f-at making fat etc.
