Early readers sometimes get overwhelmed by all the "unknowns". They struggle with the reading the words (accuracy), they read slowly (fluency) and by the time they get to the end, after all that effort they forget what they read (comprehension). We are focusing on our strategies that will help us to become more accurate readers. We have four strategies that we have been working and this week we are going to add:
Skip, Read On, Go back and Fix (Re-read to help us self-correct).
Many times we read and make a mistake and don't go back to reread and fix it. Or to reread and try again. Our brains will help us recognize when something we've read doesn't make sense, or look right and then we have to go back and reread to fix it. I read fast and sometimes during read aloud I make a mistake so I try to use some of those teachable moments to tell the kids, look, I read to fast, my brain says, go back and reread. This is an important strategy to have in our reading toolbox! Hap
