Word Accuracy

This week in reading, we are learning to use a range of strategies to figure out tricky words when we are reading. Some of the strategies that we have learnt:

To be successful at using a range of strategies, students should be able to say:

  • I can cross check to see if the pictures match what I read.
  • I can use graph sounds, digraph sounds and trigraph sounds to sound out new words.
  • I can stretch a word out and reread.
  • I can chunk to sound out words.
  • I can skip a word, then come back and reread. I can trade a word or guess a word that makes sense.

Handy Hint: When reading at home don’t just ask your adult readers to tell you a tricky word. Try using your strategies!
