PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Big Word of the Week - Reading Strategy Approach PDF file

Revised (July, 2012) to include Zaner-Blosser font and cover page, as well as ideas page.

15 pages with a total of 39 big words, designed by Clever Classroom.

***The file includes a cover page and word strips ONLY.

***PLEASE NOTE: Reading strategies are not included in the file. This file consists of flash cards/strip only.

***You will need to integrate the reading strategies that you are focusing on with individual words.

We do sell reading strategies separately, should you need them, please click here.


A whole class modelled reading and spelling activity.

These word cards can be used on a weekly basis to model, introduce and revisit reading strategies that you are covering.

Explicit teaching of strategies to read difficult words will give children confidence to tackle reading independently.

These words have been chosen to help you teach a range of strategies such as find the smaller word inside, break it up, point to the word, does it sound right and more. Children will call on skills and knowledge of letter sound relationships to help read the word in a large group.

Recommendations:

Cut up and laminate each word.
Place it on the board or easel permanently for the week.
Place all reading strategies around this word. If you have observed a strategy children are generally neglecting you can choose the word to suit this strategy.

Prompt children to revisit the strategy cards and ask open-ended questions to prompt problem solving. It will be important for children to take turns and not call out!

Model the strategies and encourage all attempts.
Refocus this strategy during guided and independent reading time, including silent and more informal reading. Ask children what strategy they used to read this word (in guided reading time) and name it by referring back to the reading strategy cards.

Use merit awards or some kind or social reward system to promote students achievements, see the reading award in the Reading Programming BLM - Ebook.

Designed by Clever Classroom, 2012.
