Reading comprehension strategy of the week: Making Connections
Good readers connect what they know with what they are reading.
What Good Readers Are Thinking...
*Does this remind me of something?
*Has this ever happened to me?
*Do I know someone like him/her? Am I like this character?When your child gets stuck on a word they can...
-get their mouth ready for the beginning sound or sounds up to the vowel.
-look at the picture and think about what would make sense.
-run their finger under the word and say the sounds or word parts they know.
-see what they know about the word (chunk it or break it into smaller words they know)
-skip it and then go back and think about what would make sense
Have a great week!
