Use this poster to teach accuracy while reading. Students so often guess at words, or stop reading completely to sound them out. Teach them to THINK before sounding out words, and watch them become more confident readers in no time. There are two posters here... one with background color, and one without.
I used a poster machine to enlarge this. I also printed a copy for each student, and they keep it in their reading notebooks under a "Reading Strategies" tab. The kids refer to it often!
