Reading is like putting together a puzzle and that's exactly what CHUNK DETECTIVE is... a puzzle! Encourage your students to become detectives and solve the mystery by finding all of the words that contain the "ch" chunk!
This item may be used for reinforcement purposes within word work centers or for independent practice after whole group instruction!
Looking for chunks is a reading strategy that helps those beginning readers to visually scan text and decode words more quickly and naturally! This in turn increases their fluency!
As readers become more skilled in their chunk recognition and word recognition, this strategy can be used to encourage finding sight words and rhyme parts within larger more complex words!
Common core standards addressed:
1. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
Know the spelling-sound correspondences for common consonant digraphs
Decode two-syllable words following basic patterns
2. Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
Orally produce words by blending sounds (phonemes), including consonant blends.
