Use the“Chunking” Decoding Strategy and Take a Chunk Out of Words!
Through my years of teaching, I have noticed that most children rely on sounding out when they are faced with an unknown word. Yet, there are many other decoding strategies that children need to learn to become better readers and decoders. These printable sheets will encourage your students to use the chunking strategy to support decoding when reading. This can be used as an intervention with students who need to use a variety of strategies independently or who just may need another way to decode. They can be used during Guided Reading to teach chunking as a decoding strategy or after the strategy is taught, they can be placed in a Reading Station for independent use.
10 pages of preselected words to “look” for little words and “take a chunk out of words.”
An Independent page to use for students when reading during Guided Reading or independently to find words with which they used this strategy.
A response page where students pick 2 words that they used the chunking strategy to decode and then a space for them to explain what they did or explain their thinking.
A blank page in which you can fill in words before children meet with you for Guided Reading to have them practice the strategy before they read words from the story you will use that day.
A coloring page to color for fun with the monster taking a “Chunk out of Words”
A small poster to use for teaching purposes.
