Reading comprehension strategy of the week: Summarizing
Good readers identify the most important ideas and restate them in their own words.
What Good Readers Are Thinking...
*How does the text's organization help me?
*What are the key words?
*Are the ideas in the text supported with convincing evidence?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!
