How to get her to READ?!

DD is 5 and reading just is not clicking for her.

She can spell all her sight words just not read them.

For example, I have these cards I made up with the ending sounds (-an, -at, -og, etc) and then the beginning sounds on another card (F-an, C-at, L-og, etc)....if I lay the -an card out with ALL the beginning letters and say "Make the word FAN." She'll grab the F and make FAN. But if we're reading one of her beginning readers that has the word 'fan' in it and I point to it and say "The cat has a...." she just shouts out random words "Rat!" or something like that.

We go over and over and over it and it won't click
