These animals give students a fun and easy way to remember the decoding and word attack strategies they can try when the encounter an unfamiliar word in their reading. Each animal represents a specific decoding strategy, and the name of the animal reflects the action to be taken. Included in this packet is a student accountability chart, where the students tally the amount of times they use each of the animal strategies. A teacher observation checklist is also available to help teachers monitor student use of the decoding strategies.
