Aligned to the science of reading, the strategies included on this card steer students with self-monitoring decoding prompts at the sentence, word, letter, sound, grapheme level and is a scaffold until decoding strategies become automatic. None of the strategies included encourage guessing. Get your students decoding by having them look at the word for clues. I created this card for students to use while reading my brand-new decodable books during Guided Phonics, a systematic, sequential, structured literacy lesson for small group reading instruction.
