Hello Literacy


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.

Strategies are:

Left then Right

Hop and Hover

Blend the Sounds

Split the Syllables

Find the Phonograms (or Seek the Secrets - if you use Secret Stories®)

Sense & Meaning

Color & Black/White versions are included

Full Page & Half Page options are included

Full Posters per Decoding Strategy added Feb. 5, 2022

Strategy Use Tracker Sheets are included

Thank you,

Jen Jones
