When a child is stuck on reading a word, here are some reading strategies:
- Tap on each word.
- Check the picture for clues.
- Get your mouth ready and sound out the word.
- ASK: "Does it make sense?" or "What would make sense?"
- Look for chunks in the word that you know. (example into: in to)
- Make connections between words you know and words that are similar. (look, book, brook)
- Reread the sentence.
- Read ahead and then reread the sentence.
