PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Big Word of the Week Set 2 - Reading and Strategy Approach - PDF file

After many requests and based on the popularity of our first set, I have made another set of 'big words' just for you!

Please read this description, view the images and download the preview file, to help you decide if this resource is appropriate for your class.

***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.


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

I have used this approach with students as young as 6 and as old as 13.

The file includes a cover page, guide and word strips, a master list in two forms: as the words appear and one in alphabetical order. There are no reading strategy posters or skills provided in this resource. Your file includes word strips. It is an aide to help you teach reading and spelling strategies. Please see our strategy posters in our TpT store should you need them.

This is a whole class modelled reading and spelling activity.

These word strips 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 (not in this pack) 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.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  October 21, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I really like this idea and the words are great, but this pack doesn't have one thing that I expected- strategies for each word. I read and reread the description and knew it wouldn't have the strategy posters you mentioned. However, I expected the words to have strategies with it. The way it is now, unfortunately I probably won't use it this year because I will have to go through all the words and try to figure out what strategies you had intended for each. I just don't have the time.

Callas444, thanks for taking the time to let me know that you had an issue with this resource. Your feedback is extremely constructive and I really value the way you have approached it.

I am so sorry if I have mislead you. This is not my intention at all. The resource is a suggested approach.

The words are to provide flash cards of this reading and or spelling strategy approach. Each word will lend itself to a range of conventional strategies. They are designed as an aide to compliment the various strategies that you might be using in your classroom.

I will go back and edit the description so that my explanation is clearer. Thanks so much for your constructive feedback, I am very grateful for your perspective as it has helped me to improve the resource.

Emma :)
