Reading Strategies

  • Stuck on a new word?

    Eagle Eye- Look at the pictures for clues.

    Lips the Fish-Get your lips ready to say the first sound.

    Stretchy the Snake- Stretch the word out and put the sounds together.

    Chunky Monkey- Look for a word chunk that you know.

    Skippy Frog- Skip the word, read the rest of the sentence, and hop back to read it.

    Peekin' Poodle- Check the pictures and then check the words. Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?

    Flippy Dolphin- Flip the vowel sound for a short or long vowel.

    Tryin' Lion- Try to reread it and try a new word.

    Helpful Kangaroo- Ask for help after you have tried all of the other animals.
