Skippy Frog teaches students the strategy of skipping the unknown word, reading to the end of the sentence, and then hopping back and reading the sentence again. Students will look at the beginning letter of the tricky word and think what would make sense. Students will try the word they think it is and read the sentence again answering the questions Does the word look right? and Does the word make sense?
