Here are 11 fun and engaging handouts to teach the reading strategy of decoding long words. This unit covers the strategies of identifying compound words, finding familiar word parts of letter patterns, and breaking the word into syllables, to successfully decode longer more challenging words. These handouts align with Common Core (reading foundational skills) standards in phonics & word recognition. These handouts can be used for whole or small group instruction, independent work, literacy centers, formative assessments, partner work, homework or anything else that fits your needs! :-)
These handouts are included in my larger "Officer Buckle & Gloria" unit, so please do not purchase these if you have already bought that unit.
