Reading Strategies


When they get stuck on a word, GOOD


  • Get your mouth ready for the first and last sounds



  • Use the first three letters to POP the sound out



  • Look at picture clues        



  • Point and slide through the word -or- use their "Thumb Buddy"                                                    



  • Link the word to one you know    



  • Skip over and reread  



  • Flip the vowel sound     




  • Look for a small word or a chunk
