• 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!
    Mrs. Barnfield
