When I was in school, we learned to read by learning all the vowels and the different sounds they made. Now, they just teach kids to learn by sight, which is probably a million times easier than trying to sound out every letter in a word.
Kids still learn the letters and their sounds. There is one method that relies in part on looking only at the shape of the whole word, but it's not been used much for about 15 years as it wasn't very effective.
