WHAT DO I DO WHEN I'M STUCK ON A WORD?


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.
