Tips for Readers
Good readers do several things:
-read for meaning
-check the picture for meaning
-use their finger when reading new texts and hard words
-get their mouth going with the sounds of the letters
-look for little parts and words they know in bigger unknown words
-read the entire word adding the endings (s, ed, ing)
-reread for fluency and meaning
-read to the punctuation (., !, ?)
-ask themselves...does it look right?
...does it sound right?
...does it make sense?
Enjoy reading! It makes a world of difference.
