"sounded out" is actually false - it is a whole word approach to teach reading and not support or develop a "strong reader". I fully believe this word list was intended for children to master phonemically and become fluent, familiar and well versed in not necessarily to be memorized with later spelling patterns to make sense of the matter. It under minds a child's ability to blend basic letter/vowel sounds and learn the alternate sounds of letters/vowels/diphthongs and diagraphs and limits children by memorizing and not practicing blending sounds and alternate sounds that make words which can cause further confusion when faced with more complex materials. Our children's intelligence is forever limited to our impatience and the limits we set on their capability, rushed school systems and teaching to test not comprehend is becoming a nightmare. Children are worth the effort to teach them all the right ways and worth the time to allow comprehension to guide them into reading, our current ranking on we stand in education should be an indicator that something needs to be reconsidered.
