A great tool for promoting independence when students are solving unknown words. I've used this strategy wheel with my students for a couple of years now as an add-on to boxed curriculum or popular reading models. I found this strategy wheel is exactly what my students needed. They relied too heavily on my support. However, with the use of this tool, I've been able to take over a coaching role with the students, and I've seen their decoding improve dramatically. Easy to use, easy to store, and easy to personalize to each student.
