The purpose of this study was to collect data in order to make a comparison of the better method of teaching vocabulary recognition and comprehension. The comparison was made between a sight whole word method and a phonics method. The alpha level adopted to test the hypothesis was 0.05. The value of the Student-t ratio was 4.65. A statistical table confirmed that a statistically significant ratio would need to be 2.45. 2.45 < 4.65; therefore, the null hypothesis was rejected. The findings led the researcher to conclude that the sight whole word method was superior to the phonics method for the child used in the study.
