reading strategies- chunking decoding strategy
Chunky Monkey teaches students how to look for chunks and little words inside bigger words. Children are able to answer the question Does it look right? by using what they know about words to decode unknown words. For example, children can read the word cupcake more easily if they break down the word into cup and cake instead of trying to sound the word out.
