Nonsense Words – Are They Nonsense?

Wonderful article about the problem with assessing kids with nonsense words – a practice I used to do regularly.  It is so hard to admit when you are wrong.  But also so important.

Here’s my favorite quote: “Once you remove phonemes and graphemes from a meaningful context, they’re no longer phonemes or graphemes.”

I couldn’t say it any better than this.
