This product is actually 2 products in 1! The first is a strategy card featuring 14 strategies for figuring out tricky words! It is equipped with pictures to help your students select different strategies to try. The second is a prompting card that follows the method of Pause, Prompt, Praise! As a child reads and comes to a word he/she doesn’t know, we need to wait (PAUSE) to give the child time to reflect and think about strategies s/he can use to figure it out. Then we question (PROMPT) to help guide them in solving for the unknown word and lastly and critically important is the compliment (PRAISE) of what the reader did well. Our feedback, if it is done positively and constructively, will help the reader grow in their independence. The prompting card contains targeted prompts to help guide your readers in figuring out unknown words. Just print, fold and laminate!
This product can be used with beginning readers, struggling readers and English Language Learners!
Using both the strategy and the prompting card simultaneously will provide a winning combination for both you and your students! Also, great as a resource for parents, volunteers who read with children and/or classroom aides.
The prompts and the strategies on the card have been modeled after the work of Jennifer Serravallo and her 2015 hit book, The Reading Strategies Book-Over 300 Strategies!
Thanks for stopping by!
