• 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!
    Mrs. Barnfield
