The number one thing the GLASS list does for children learning to read or struggling with reading is to reduce impulsiveness. GLASS list reduces impulsive guessing. It allows the child to start with the part of the word they know.
Traditional phonics always starts at the beginning of the word. Ex: The child sees the word think and reads it as thank because they may recognize the th and k. However, if they know ink from GLASS list 1 Starters and ank from GLASS list 2 Medium they will be able to quickly and easily recognize the difference in these two words.
Reading words correctly and quickly will increase reading fluency. Better reading fluency creates better comprehension.
Teachers love the GLASS list because they say it is so easy to learn and implement. They see results quickly and children don’t seem to mind practicing the drills. Within 5 minutes a teacher can read the cues and implement the program with a child.
I have witnessed children with a 3-year gap in reading, make 15-month gains, in as little of 9 months of instruction with the GLASS list.
