As the students read books during guided reading groups and independent reading time, we will explore and use various reading strategies. Please remind your child to use these helpful phonics decoding strategies to figure out "tricky" words as he or she reads at home:
Box Prefixes & Suffixes
(take off beginnings/endings: re-, un-/-ing, -ed)
Divide Multisyllabic Words by Syllable (pump/kin)
Identify Syllable Type (open or closed)
Sound Out (blend syllables together)
Confirm (make it sound right)
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for all of your support at home. Have fun reading!
