Do your students struggle to break up unknown words? Have you suggested they "chunk it up" with "chunky the monkey"? Decoding can be very systematic when following a very simple strategy. Your students can become fluent decoders and skilled readers when using this strategy.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to instruct your students on the seven different syllable types and help them to become determined decoders. The supporting document supplements the video and will help to provide you with guided practice when learning more about this systematic approach to decoding.
