Reading Systems: Learn to Read Systems for Kids | LeapFrog

The three cueing systems of reading are the graphophonic, syntactic, and semantics systems, and each one is necessary to acheive comprehension. The graphophonic system deals with sounds and letters. The syntactic system focuses on grammar and the internal and external stuctures of text. The last cueing system is semantics. This system deals with the meaning of a text. Students cannot use the semantics system without first mastering the graphophonic and syntactic systems.

I ended up with 86 red, 129 orange, 143 yellow, 16 green and 15 blue. I find this curious because when I use a similar system reading other books, concerning the top three priorities, the ratio is usually much more bottom heavy versus top heavy. For example reading the encyclopedic Siva Purana of medieval Hinduism, or the mixed mythic and philosophical Cicero’s On the Nature of the Gods, the ratio is closer to 20/120/400. Even the brutally caste-ridden Laws of Manu of Brahminism has some nobility. The war-themed Mahabharata of the epic period of Hinduism is replete with universal teachings. By comparison, Buddhist and Christian texts have much more humanistic themes than the Koran. The only thing I felt inspired to do after reading the entire Abridged Koran, was to get out in the fresh air and sunshine. So, be prepared with some drinking water and a place to take a break, otherwise you might feel sad and negative. Reading the Abridged Koran was a pivotal experience for me, unfortunately verifying my worst fears.
