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.
