Word Ninja - Word Attack Strategies Poster

Word Ninja - Word Attack Strategies Poster
Product Description
Remind your students how to "attack" those difficult-to-read words. Words can be unrecognized and unpronounceable or they are simply unfamiliar to the reader. Use this poster to remind them of various strategies they can use to be more successful in their reading.

It should be pretty self-explanatory to the teacher, but your students will need to be taught things like using context clues and morphemic connections (groups of letters that carry meaning, e.g. word that end in "-tion" are nouns).

I teach my students to use "the Force". When Luke Skywalker was learning to use his lightsaber ("Star Wars", the original), Obi-Wan Kenobi placed a blast helmet on him so he was unable to see the object he was supposed to hit. We do the same in thing class by covering up the unknown word (so we can't see it) and "feeling" what it should be (or at least what kind of word it could be).

By the way, I know I am mixing metaphors but c'mon. Star Wars, Mighty Morphing Power Rangers, AND ninjas! (I tried to get those Turtles in there too, but...)
