There are reasons that make it hard for us to read.

1. You don't understand the subject.

2. The material is above your grade level.

3. You may have a visual impairment, like Mrs. Haefkes' double vision, or a complication such as dislexia, where your letters flip flop

4. You may not be interested in the subject therefore it is difficult to pay attention and then you won't remember what you read , you are just reading words.

5. It may be difficult for you to put the sounds of the letters in a word together and then say the word.

There are also reasons that make it easier for us to read.

1. We can put the letter sounds together and read a word.
