Providing multiple ways for students to practice using the decoding strategies is very important.
This game provides practice using the decoding strategies for a variety of reading levels. No matter what stage of independent decoding your beginning reader is in, this game will nicely fit their individual needs.
I use this game board in class and also offer it as @ home practice. It is easy to use and keeps students on track with good decoding habits.
The game includes:
-a game board
-directions for use
-@home directions for use.
Use it as independent practice to help students keep track of the strategies they are continually using. This offers a chance for a conversation as to why this strategy is being use so frequently and what other strategies could be added to make the decoding process quicker.
Use it with partners by keeping track of how many times a strategy is used successfully. Compare scores for the win. Use within your centers, as part of Daily 5, @ home practice, or during guided reading groups. The ideas are endless.
It was the motivator my student needed to excite them once again about these useful decoding strategies! It was the one tool that was needed when independent use of the strategies was put into place. It gave students the chance to track and record their use and understanding of the strategies. I have also used this for data collection to know what stage of understanding students are at with independently using the decoding strategies.
