Students will read more quickly and effectively when given appropriate strategies for reading and instructed how to match those strategies to reading situations. There are many important strategies to learn concerning the many facets of reading. This set focuses on strategies that will enhance student reading during guided reading experiences. By providing visual representations of the strategies and encouraging students to talk about and practice them, students will develop flexibility of reasoning, gain reading confidence, and gain the ability to control reading experiences.
The colorful/child friendly strategy posters included in this set are:
Sit in reading position.
Point at the word your voice is saying.
Look at the pictures for clues.
Get your mouth ready.
Slide through the word sound by sound.
Reread and think! (Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?)
Skip the word and read on. (Then reread)
Check your vowel sounds.
Look for chunks you know.
Think about word families.
This set also includes strategy cards that you can use in your classroom to remind students of the strategies as you learn them. Also included are posters that you can use to teach each strategy. Print the posters on large paper if possible and display them where the class can see them. If you are using them in a whole group lesson you can print smaller versions. Each poster is followed by a lesson plan that will help you teach each reading strategy.
